“The Land of Plenty” — All the Lonely People

This track by a band (presumably) named after a line from “Eleanor Rigby” adequately fulfills its Beatlesque obligations, but (Gallagher brothers take note) it experiments with and modifies the now standard Britpop blueprint. A Peanuts-worthy piano loop provides melodic bounce to singer Chris Lyssy’s slouchy delivery, while brief orchestral swells hint at what Ringo and co. might’ve done with Pro Tools. Even better, a distorted bizarro chorale breakdown mid-song suggests Lyssy and drummer Steve Kane haven’t been fast-forwarding through “Revolution 9.”
