Pram - Little Angel, Little Monkey

Pram did not enjoy the same level of success as Too Pure labelmates Stereolab or PJ Harvey, but that's OK, their failure puts them in the same class as Th' Faith Healers. Helium, from 1994, was a pretty strange album then, and it remains so now. Not all the songs work for me, but I really like this one. Horns, syncopated percussion, and probably a toy piano or three. Best new jazz on mars.
