Vocalist Matthew Moldowan and bassist Jeffrey Josiah Powell let the name expire on their previous musical act. The two regrouped in 2010 with the idea to be as nimble as possible-and voila, by 2011, they were in the Warehouse studio working on the bed tracks for their debut album as Fine Times. You don't just conjure a heart-melting bridge like the one in "High Brow Low Times" out of a short attention span, and you don't lay down a grand procession like "Lions" without a precision feel for your craft. Fine Times is luscious, stately pop which sounds like Suede gone stadium sized. If there's a lineage of sophisticated, lovingly crafted pop that stretches from Phil Spector to OMD and MGMT, then Fine Times is sitting somewhere near the end of it.
