Watchword, the latest album from Swindon band Mr Love & Justice is 1960s-esque, simplistic-yet-effective, folk pop. Stand-out track We, The Chartists, which has a Wicker Man feeling to it. Never Know Why is another sterling effort.
Mr Love & Justice — who are named after a Colin McInnes novel — wanted to create something that sounded like the good old days and in this album they have. Nostalgic folk music is increasing in popularity. Mr Love & Justice are a band that deserves more recognition.
