In America the 90s revival involves a return to the slacker fuzz-guitar sounds of grunge-era indie rock. In the UK, it’s meant a headfirst dive into nostalgia for Britpop’s glory days, and one of the British music press’s top obsessions is a young Worcester group called Peace that sometimes sounds like one of the British music press’s top obsessions from 20 years ago. Unlike the many wannabe Blurs and Oases on the scene right now, though, they’re the type of band who would put a ten-minute song based on a histrionically psychedelic extended guitar solo as track number two on their breakout release, last year’s EP Delicious—a fantastically crazy idea, especially these days. Their recent full-length, In Love (Columbia), combines snappy songwriting with the druggy weirdness of Clinic and the shambolically hedonistic, beat-dense sound of the shaggy bands who sprang up in the footsteps of the Happy Mondays a couple decades ago. —Miles Raymer Team Spirit opens.
