  • Mere months after the 2007 release of the moody COLD COLORS EP, Saturday Looks Good to Me unveiled its fourth full-length outing, FILL UP THE ROOM. Easily the indie-pop collective's most ambitious and expansive album, this 11-track set often recalls a more restrained Arcade Fire, particularly on the restless "When I Lose My Eyes," which vibrates with tense guitar-and-drum lines, and the dreamy "Make a Plan," a tune that calls attention to frontman Fred Thomas's laid-back, though slightly disarming, charisma and the ensemble's inventive arrangements. Although ROOM marks a departure from the group's longtime label, Polyvinyl, SLGTM seems to have embraced its new home--K Records--with verve, as evinced by the assured and adventurous nature of the record.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Fred Thomas has found his natural home on the dancefloors of the UK's classicist indie discos....It's breezy, jangling stuff..."

Alternative Press (p.177) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The band weave in full string arrangements and harpsichords, which add rich warmth to their sound."
