Boomkat Product Review:
After dropping an eponymous debut album on the always awesome Important imprint, Citay return for this far breezier follow-up for Dead Oceans (a label rapidly accumulating some seriously impressive credentials - see the recent Phosphorescent and Dirty Projectors albums for evidence of that). Little Kingdom is, it's fair to say, a pretty hippyish affair with an extended cast helping central player Ezra Feinberg to realize his '70s-tinged technicolour fantasy. You can even hear hints at krautrock in there, submerged beneath the Jeff Lynn-at-Woodstock vibes that dominate the exuberant acid-drop arrangements, which only serves to add an air of experimental credibility and depth to the sugar-coated arrangements of ambitious songs like 'First Fantasy' and 'Last Days Last'. Highly recommended.
