7digital What we said: Ron Mael-alike Fred Macpherson reportedly found Spector’s sound by tinkering with a “Casio keyboard and a few Gloria Estefan samples”. If that sounds unconventional, it’s probably less eccentric than his former band Ox.Eagle.Lion.Man, whose sprawling folk songs about “bringing up children in forests” were, by his own admission, an acquired taste. Anyway, Spector’s debut album owes a lot to the quirky, synth-infused, guitar-pop of Pulp and Roxy Music, and approximately zilch to the Latin rhythms of ‘Dr Beat’, and vindicates the BBC’s Sound of 2012 committee who tipped the Dalston-formed quintet as ones to watch back in January.
