Denmark's own Figurines have made progress since 2006's Skeleton (TCG). While that album found the band sounding like a sped-up Danish Modest Mouse, last month saw the release of the group's new album, When The Deer Wore Blue (TCG), which is decidedly more mature and experimental in a Brian Wilson kind of way. In fact, the LP sounds a lot like Pet Sounds and Smile fooling around with each other whilst on vacation in Denmark. If you can't imagine what that sounds like, you could buy (I know, what an antiquated idea) the new record and find out yourself, or you could just check out their tour with the recently grounded Dappled Cities, starting this week.
