While it would seem premature for a band with only two albums to bust out the studio detritus, this compilation of outtakes and throwaways only proves the precocious Brits’ Gomez’s junk is better than most bands’ A-list stuff. The vibe on Abandoned Shopping Trolley Hotline is seriously ramshackle — many of the tracks were recorded primitively and on the fly — but that unmistakable soul-adelic undertow carries you through the rough patches. B+
