Arab Strap
Monday at the Hug & Pint (Matador)

By: Alex Steininger

Scottish post-folk duo Arab Strap's latest, Monday at the Hug & Pint, speeds things up from their previous outputs. While their other songs could mostly be characterized by referring to them as slow and drippy, their new material is a bit more upbeat, though still as steeped in autumn as the others and equally as moving to boot. But what the added speed (though not on all songs) brings to the table is an expanded canvas for the band to paint on, helping to grow their sound, and giving you a little less direction, but a little more diversity. I'll give it a B-.
