A decade on from their first single, “Only Love Can Break Your Heart,” Sound Of Water finds that Saint Etienne still believe in magic. Expect shiny pop with a motorik pulse, a nine-minute single, “How We Used to Live,” named after a late ’70s schools and colleges series, a concise, thrilling album that balances between the mainstream and more avant-garde concerns.
