As far as beards, random band names and matter-of-fact song titles go, London’s self-described “ghost folk” quartet Die Mason Die aren’t breaking any new ground, but, luckily, their music is a different story. Where ”You’re Lonely” lacks in its less-than-imaginative name, it makes up for in its polished and patient sound — an intriguing blend of rock’s many faces, with hints of Coldplay’s emotive radio rock appeal, Bon Iver’s orchestral haunts, and even Fleet Foxes’ folkish ways.

“You’re Lonely” blooms, but never builds up to overtly triumphant moments; instead, it cautiously swells just below the surface the whole way through, sore like a deep wound that’s not quite excruciating, but simply won’t quit throbbing.
