Saint Etienne - Good Humor download album
Good Humor is the fourth studio album by English alternative dance band Saint Etienne. It was released on 3 May 1998 by Creation Records. The American spelling "humor" is used in the title as the band were, according to Sarah Cracknell, "fed up with the 'quintessentially English' tag, so there was a bit of a backlash against that. The album was a departure for the group, who had been associated with the indie dance genre.
With GOOD HUMOR, Saint Etienne return to the 60s-inflected pop that marked their first two albums. Breezy music comes as easily as breathing for them, and from the first track, Woodcabin, it’s clear that they’re here to bring sunshine into your life. Even with the sibling rivalry gone to the disco, Sylvie, things stay upbeat. No one but Saint Etienne can make separation (like in Mr. Donut ) sound happy. Been So Long tosses in some light jazz riffs; Postman plays off the dynamic contrast of the verses and the chorus; and Erica America makes the most of its funk bass

Good Humor has Saint Etienne back cooking up more delectable lolli-pop. From "Woodcabin," the dubby, bass-heavy opener, Good Humor is a typically arch Saint Etienne album full of easy-listening dream pop. Tracks like the shimmering "Lose That Girl" and the swirling "Erica America" show Saint Etienne at its melancholic best. There are, predictably, some near misses such as the Beatlesque "Mr. Donut," which is as sweet as a strawberry field but fails to deliver the melodic promises made by the smart atmospherics.

I just saw them at the Park West in Chicago last Friday. Never heard of Saint Etienne until couple of years ago. It was from the Sopranos episode where Jimmy gets whacked and I remember how cool the song in the background was. 3 years ago.
Saint Etienne, one of the most underrated and beloved cult acts of our time, concludes its deluxe reissues campaign. At its best Good Humor capably splits the difference between old Etienne and new, embracing the 1960s as fervently as ever on "Split Screen" and "The Bad Photographer" while adopting that era's studio vernacular- brass, vibes, electric piano. It also maintains the band's trademark melancholy streak with songs like "Mr. Donut", "Postman", and "Lose That Girl". Perhaps inevitably, given the origins of the album, the band even tips its hat to ABBA on "Sylvie"
