None of which would be more than merely admirable without songs that kick you in the guts and steal your mittens; Élan Vital has nothing but. Pretty Girls have written a raft of songs with big, fat hooks that you can almost hear the mall kids singing along with like "The Number," with its undeniably accurate "Because I want/And I don't know what I want/But when I want it I want it" chorus or "Parade," a rollicking f ck-the-office anthem perfect for cubicle dwellers.

Don't tell that to Pretty Girls Make Graves- they know it. For four years the band has made music in a style that's widely warned against. But what many have read as shallow, angsty discharge actually bespeaks an unusual maturity as Pretty Girls Make Graves throw caution to the wind and do as they please- an insouciance that has translated well into their music. For that I'll begrudge Élan Vital's growing pains. The band's first record in three years is also its first with keyboardist Leona Marrs, and the album packages a loosened-up (read: defanged), groove-centric sound, infinitely more urbane but so much more boring, too. Forced change always comes off rushed and awkward and overzealous; no exception here, from half-timed should-be banger "The Magic Hour" to post-Decemberists accordion-whacked "Selling the Wind".
