Scotland Yard Gospel Choir

Scotland Yard Gospel Choir CD

Chicago-based chamber pop collective the Scotland Yard Gospel Choir aren't your typical debauched rock stars reveling in a pastiche of self-destructive clichés. Leading a band that's shared the stage with both the Arcade Fire and Ira Glass, Spoon and Dave Eggers, it's clear that lead singer, guitarist, and keyboard player Elia and his scrappy cooperative are comfortable straddling the divide between the debased rock 'n' roll world and the high-minded literati.
 
On the group's self-titled sophomore album (their first for Bloodshot) they deliver songs that crackle with the sweeping intensity of life in its totality—songs that evoke the jubilance of an early spring as effortlessly as the desolation of a Chicago winter.
