Not really sure how to classify this. Roxy Music-ish art pop with oblique angularities and discernible mystique? The co-ed Sing Market were a one-off endeavor featuring minor players that formally performed with the Thompson Twins, Graham Parker, and if the blurb I read is to be believed, even Elvis Costello. Via TV's title piece takes a minute and a half to build to anything resembling a melody...but when it kicks in it's downright pretty, not to mention vaguely addictive. The two fretless bass-enhanced flip-sides are grittier, with "Blue Cavaliers" proving to be the more rewarding of the two. Interesting disc. My copy contains a lyric insert with a small, asymmetrical swatch of fabric glued to it. No clue.
A. Via TV
