The small, rainy British town is timeless because, no matter where or when it is, it stays the same. The houses are identical. There’s a weird-looking town hall. And there’s always that one restaurant for takeaway. It’s boring and gray, but it’s YOUR boring, gray place—and it’s oddly comforting that there are never any surprises. This music, by bands from all over the U.K., is for the walk home, the drive to nowhere in particular, or the train ride to another village where the landscape never changes. It just fits.
