A Flourish and a Spoil by The Districts, released 10 February 2015 1. 4th and Roebling 2. Peaches 3. Chlorine 4. Hounds 5. Sing the Song 6. Suburban Smell 7. Bold 8. Heavy Begs 9. Young Blood 10. 6 AM Whether they’re tearing it up in a basement, rocking a festival crowd or hard at work in a studio, The Districts are a band that exists in the moment. The Pennsylvania four-piece channels its long-forged bonds into visceral, explosive rock and roll. You’ll hear hints of Americana, moments of the blues and folk, but written into songs so expressive that those labels are transcended  .

The Districts’ appeal lies in how you can call them a "rock band" and have a typically vague term mean something specific. Or, maybe, they’re a throwback to the last time "rock band" meant something. All four members are under 21 years old and they play bar-friendly rawk with the irreverence and impatience of kids who still have to get drunk in the parking lot, replacing the classic rock and blues with mannish-boy punk vigor. They're hardly the only ones who fit this description, but the Districts have significant advantages over their contemporaries. For one thing, they leave something to the imagination.

4th and Roebling, 04:49.

A great album that deserves a little more recognition. Just give a listen to Young Blood if you want to get a feel for it, or if you like The Strokes it should be right up your alley. The pressing is quite decent with medium to low surface noise with just a few pops that Im sure are just static from my copy. The album is distorted sounding by stylistic choice, specifically in the vocals and the sound is tailored perfectly to blend with that style while still keeping it detailed and clear in the soundstage. The mids are thankfully present as well but the bottom end bass seems a little too thinned out to my liking.

A Flourish and a Spoil. LP - Fat Possum Records 14978). Featuring new guitarist Pat Cassidy (founding member Mark Larson left the band for college) and production by John Congleton, the Districts' second album reins in the jammy aspects of their music somewhat, giving their fury and poetry a little more form. The new songs on their self-titled EP hinted at this direction, but it feels more natural here. A Flourish and a Spoil's best moments sound refined instead of confined, and still leave plenty of room for their buildups and breakdowns.

But the truth is, A Flourish And A Spoil would be a great album whether these guys were 20 or 50. After bursting on to the scene with this video of Funeral Beds and a banner SXSW 2014, the boys put off college and signed to Fat Possum. With lofty expectations, they hit the studio with John Congleton who did a great job of capturing the real angst of growing up in a small town with production that is both raw and brash. This isn’t some made for MTV bullshit angst. I got kids closer to their age and even I can relate to lead singer, Rob Grote’s lyrics. Funeral Beds put The Districts on the map. A Flourish And A Spoil planted a big fucking flag on the map announcing that they were here to stay. Follow me on Twitter at yHearYa. The Districts are here.

A great album that deserves a little more recognition. Just give a listen to Young Blood if you want to get a feel for it, or if you like The Strokes it should be right up your alley. As a not so popular band its normal to assume sub par production for the least available format but here we get a taste of that sweet quality we tend to lack these days. The pressing is decent with medium to low surface noise and some light crackling at times before and after RCM cleaning. The cut is done with enough dynamics and clarity which is great for 45 minutes of this kind of music on just one record. Its not overly bright and edgy either, like most sub par produced modern music on records which is probably helped by Calbis mixing and mastering work, no unpleasant sibilant vocals or instruments. The album is distorted sounding by stylistic choice, specifically in the vocals and the sound is tailored perfectly to blend with that style while still keeping it detailed and clear in the soundstage. The mids are thankfully present as well but the bottom end bass seems a little too thinned out to my liking. That is about the only aspect I can think of to critisize the product on because I do love great bass in music.If this was a 2x record set it would easily have killed it with a perfect score Im sure but while there is room for improvement I wish that more modern records sounded like this one.Equipment used:Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-110 CartridgeCyrus 2 AmplifierSystem Fidelity SF-3050 Tower SpeakersCustom made HQ Speaker Cables
  • Capella
Hi, I ordered this a CD from you and it said I should receive a bonus CD housed in a thin card sleeve although I did not receive it when the CD came. Will it be sent separately?
  • Maman
Hi there. Unfortunately the bonus CD is only enclosed with the purple vinyl version of the release. It won't come along with the CD.
  • Kamuro
Does anybody know where to buy this one?
  • Eng.Men
Thanks, at Rough Trade as well
