Grouplove, ‘Spreading Rumours’

Grouplove make shaggy arena rock for the pool-skating set, like Arcade Fire with a seventh-grade sense of humor. Their second LP retains the goofy amiability of their debut and cranks the Nineties influences – “Raspberry” is the best Pixies song since 1991, and the loopy “Hippy Hill” downshifts into a sludgy bridge after Christian Zucconi makes a bold proclamation: “I’d rather be a hippie than a hipster.”
