8/10 according to on Thu 18 Mar, 2010

Absolutely everyone is being signed to 4AD these days. What was an amazing label is now being used as a way to sell records to die hard 4AD collectors who won't let go. Harsh perhaps but true. I guess folks will get wary and that will be the end of 4AD. They do get it right sometimes though (Deerhunter, Ariel Pink and I did like The Tuneyards). Stornaway though? Anyhoo Serena Maneesh are Norway's answer to My Bloody Valentine or Medicine or that sort of late 80's early 90's wonky guitarry indie sound that plagued the airwaves back then. It's never gone out of fashion though and Serena have adopted that sound like it's their own and added their own thing to it all. Occasionally it's all so My Bloody Valentine I get so confused I forget who I'm listening to. The elements of their music I like the most is the more disjointed raucous rock an it's a shame there's not more than that. I'd rather hear more of that clever disjointed guitars and drums work than the MBV copying... Listen to Melody For Jaana... it's just fallen of Loveless.... Still it's not a bad album and while comparisons are inevitable and they obviously wear their influences on their sleeves there's enough here of interest to warrant checking it out.

So, what do you think?
