Reviews

4/10 according to on Fri 08 Mar, 2013

There was some debate in our office as to what this record was going to sound like, with a mysterious female hand holding a burning matchbook on the front cover, and the band name not really suggesting any genre in particular. We discussed how it might be gnarly garage, or maybe some kind of gothy coldwave, maybe some kind of hair metal or sleek electronic pop. That said, it’s their third album so who’s really the fool here?

Either way, what I wasn’t expecting was the late-’80s FM radio AOR which actually burst forth from the speakers, sounding painfully like a cross between Dire Straits and Don Henley. It has the occasional smattering of Vampire Weekend Afro-bounce or Roxy Music slink, but I cannot bring myself to recommend it. Your dad might like it but I feel like I’m stuck at the world’s worst wedding reception.

So, what do you think?
