Elizabeth and the Catapult.
Elizabeth and the Catapult just released a fine new full-length album, Taller Children, which nicely captures the group's sophisticated sound. The disc is highlighted by its title track, which addresses the Wall Street crisis — and self-interest in general — in compelling, appealingly lighthearted fashion.
