***The sleepy beauty of the ART MUSEUMS' debut album Rough Frame (Woodist) appeared seemingly out of nowhere, but their apparent off-the-cuff casualness and unpretentious brilliance come as the logical bubbling up of years absorbing the arcane musical corners of the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s—where utopian folk visions, pop-art obsessions, giddy punk and new wave sheen all make perfect sense. The few who have seen The Art Museums have been lucky to hear bits of their backlog of as-yet-unreleased songs,and now the first treasures are finally seeing sunlight: 'Feel Like Dreams' is a boyish reverie that soars along pre-prog Genesis-style keyboard chords above crisp drum machine cracks. It's all really unexpected and works like you wouldn't believe! And ‘S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G.?’ Well, without hyperbole, we can say that it is, to us, the most enjoyable one minute, forty-five seconds put on tape in a long, long time. The Style Council stripped of pomp and set to a thunderous low-end of rumbling electronic drums, 'S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G.' is disposable in all the right ways, the perfect mod-pop soundtrack to your no-longer-dull walk down the street. REALLY! Beautiful full-color, heavy-duty glossy glued sleeves. First pressing of 500.
