I want less

I love the underheralded band Wheat, particularly in their poppier moments, but I don't love many of their albums. Despite too much filler for a 33 minute album, their new White Ink Black Ink comes the closest to anything since their stellar, undervalued (by even the band) Per Second Per Second Per Second... Every Second album, still a shining example of why major label polish can be a good thing and seriously one of my favourite albums of all time (if not top 20, then lurking around it).
