On their sixth album, these sexy-gloomy Danes shed their leather jackets and allow the sun to shine in, at least for a few minutes: The chiming "Sinking With the Sun" could be a lost B side from the British shoegazers Lush, while the peppy "Downtown" swings and chimes. Even when the band allows its minor-key impulses back in, the album feels pleasant, in a late-summer-sunset kind of way.
