"Consistency. Repetition. Hypnotism. Dance-trance. Spacemen 3 as heard through a very narrow filter indeed. They just get straight down to it, 10 seconds in and you could be 10 hours in. I’d like to hear that, actually: Float Riverer playing the same riff for 10 hours straight, the vocals sometimes dropping out... Only formed in Manchester end of last year, and every song sounds roughly, brutally, gloriously the same. Fucking great stuff."
Everett True, Collapse Board
The debut LP by Manchester duo Float Riverer clocks in at just under 25 minutes, racing through 12 joyfully haphazard, sneeringly petulant hypno-punk hits. The guitar dominates the aural palette, the vocals sit right in the middle of the mix, muffling out a lyrical predilection for the idiosyncrasies of the mundane, while the wilfully reckless drumming alludes to the ecstatic possibilities of infinite, slapdash repetition. Ancient melodies from the vault, unlocked for a new era by the insane-cum-laconic Kate (also of Hotpants Romance). So this is what happened to Manchester punk!
