Matthew Hart's third album as the Russian FuturistsOur Thickness offers more of his bedroom-recorded symphonic pop, albeit with a little more focus and polish than his earlier work had.
Hart's way with pop melodies and intricate, largely Still Life - The Russian Futurists - Our Thickness arrangements have drawn fairly accurate comparisons to Magnetic Fieldsbut the Russian Futurists ' music is even more similar to the work Beldurra - Latzen - Heriotzari Deika Rob Crow 's Optiganally Yours project; both feature quirky yet oddly elegant arrangements and sweet, boyish vocals.
Not that Hart's music is derivative -- after all, not too many songs feature swanky pianos and honking Canadian geese, but "Our Still Life - The Russian Futurists - Our Thickness Out of Ink" begins with both. The Russian Futurists ' music is bigger and lusher than that of Hart's most easily recognizable influences; in fact, his productions and arrangements are so expansive and detailed that they tend to overwhelm his songs, at least on the first few listens.

The slightly more down-to-earth tracks, such as "Paul Simon" Smokey Robinson & The Miracles - The Tears Of A Clown "Incandescent Hearts" are more immediate but still plenty atmospheric, suggesting a cuter, quirkier spin on the Postal Service 's breezy indie electronica.
There's also an AM pop quality to Hart's songs -- you can hear bits and pieces of forgotten '60s and '70s bubblegum pop hits in all of his songs, and especially on "Hurtin' 4 Certain" and "2 Dots on a Map," both of which sound utterly fresh and naggingly familiar at the same time. Homespun creativity has rarely sounded bigger -- or better -- than it Diagram - Anders Ilar - Enkel on Our Thickness.
