UK vinyl LP pressing of the 2009 sophomore album from the quirky Britpopsters. Wall of Arms retains all the energy and passion that made The Maccabees fan favorites first time round but is a huge leap forward creatively. Paired with the Arcade Fire producer Markus Dravs, the album introduces horns and keys to their signature staccato guitar attack. The tonality of emotions explored and broad expanse of space the songs inhabit is breathtaking. Includes the single ‘Love You Better’ and ‘No Kind Words’. 11 tracks. Universal. 2009.
