Le Grand Magistery
Release date: 2008
All songs by Matthew Edwards except "Coburn and Robards" by Matthew Edwards and Jun Kurihara.
Dedicated to the memory of Nikki Sudden.
"That the band can work in such opposing emotions and styles without ever feeling like they're giving one short shrift speaks highly of their talent as both musicians and storytellers. Masculine Feminine is rife with plenty of examples of the same, a roundly solid record of thoughtful, mature pop that never chokes itself with pensiveness. If you ever see their name on a cabaret marquee, be sure to stop in." 9/10
"Their idea of romance is "The Land of the Beautiful Girls", their idea of movie heroes are the unillustrious Coburn & Robards - but their idea of heartbreak is nothing that an extra accordion solo can't cure" 3.5/4 stars
