Your Daily Lick: King Midas in Reverse

Everything Gets Better (Fortune)

King Midas in Reverse is a throwback, in a good way. There are a lot of classic 80s and 90s Britpop influences in evidence on Everything Gets Better, particularly on the almost eerie, spaced-out vocals and the open, airy production. It’s a mellow sort of album — a little downbeat but not depressing — and it feels refreshingly clean and simple. The Chris Isaac-style guitar on a few tracks is a nice little local touch.
