Wild Beasts
Boy King

Sporting a sleek new logo and a slick new sound, Kendal's biggest ever export (bar the mint cake) are back with their increasingly commercially-aimed sound that might give the Hot Chip's and the Metronomy's a run for their money. Where they once sang "The messed bottom bunked bed of the dead, this fouled fal...view item »

Wild Beasts
Present Tense Remixes

Indie rockers Wild Beasts went all sensual and synth on 'Present Tense', their fourth record. For the special edition issue of the record, some honest-to-god electronic types move in to show them what's what, reworking their tunes after their own warped visions. Foals offer up a cut, as does everyone's favourite experimental constant, East India...view item »

Wild Beasts
A Simple Beautiful Truth

Clint just walked into the office as I was cranking up this hand-stamped white label on the old plate warmer over there. He laughed and exclaimed that he'd had a dream last night that he was at work reviewing this very record. I saved a man from his dreams coming true. What an awful cad I am! Clint is the resident office 'Beasts fan but ...view item »

Wild Beasts
Present Tense

Oh God, dear God what have they done? Wild Beasts are a band who, after I’d completely dismissed their debut ‘Limbo Panto’ due to its carnival shrieking and roly poly cabaret operatics, I grew to love following their about turn towards a subtle and effective new take on pastoral British pop on their superb ‘Two Da...view item »

Wild Beasts
Wanderlust

There comes a time in each band’s career where the fateful line ‘hope you like our new electronic direction’ is uttered and the press fall over themselves in critical praise for such a ‘brave’ move. But for some bands, what they previously had as a four piece guitar dominated band is so much more than they could eve...view item »

Wild Beasts
Reach A Bit Further

I've never really followed this band particularly closely, but I do know they've built up quite a following with their dude-from-Gene-fronting-The-National style heart-on-sleeveisms. This four song EP, confusingly marked '33' but actually playing at 45 on the A side, continues with this d...view item »

Wild Beasts
Smother

Less like Wild Beasts and more like the ugly ducklings who turned into beautiful swans. Forgetting about debut 'Limbo Panto' which we'll now classify as a prototype, this one carries on where the superb 'Two Dancers' left off. In a similar vein to that album this is a slow burning treat and an album in the old fashioned sense of the word in that...view item »

Wild Beasts
Two Dancers Remixes

A remix 12" from 'Official Clint Album of the Year 2009' winners Wild Beasts. I had high hopes for this as the lead mix is by Canadian glacial misery guts the Junior Boys. Their version is a ploddy disco-fied thing that wanders along without really going anywhere - you can neither dance to it nor get emotionally involved until the last minu...view item »

Wild Beasts
Two Dancers

Sometimes when a new voice comes into pop music the first reaction is one of horror. From Elvis Presley to Mark E Smith to Billy MacKenzie, Green Garside to Antony Hegarty. The unbridled raw sound of a new vocal instrument can take some getting used to. So when I first heard the Wild Beasts I thought it was some kind of joke. Some kids tone deaf id...view item »

Wild Beasts
The Devil's Crayon

I think I'm finally starting to get Wild Beasts and anyone who sings about 'The Devils Crayon' gets thumbs up from me. It's completely ludicrous but they have something about them I can't put my finger on. This new single is a bit smart actually...... Decent tune complete with vocals ala The Sparks and The Associates (I do get a bit of Tony Hadley ...view item »

Wild Beasts
Assembly

Wild Beasts release their 1st single for Domino. What on earth can you say about this band?? The music is a quirky Chas & Dave singalong but the falsetto vocals are ludicrous.... I can't but help think of the the singer from The Darkness. It's operatic weirdness which you're either gonna love or hate.... There's bits of Gorky's in there. T...view item »

Wild Beasts
Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants

Here I have a cracking crackly single from the WILD BEASTS called "Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants". "Prince verses The Guillemots shouts Phil".Its definitely caused a little stir in the office. Its the vocals that are instantly striking and sounds like something that would take me a while to explain. It's falsetto by a man w...view item »

Wild Beasts
Limbo, Panto

When I first heard the Wild Beasts singles a while back I thought the band were a complete joke. Mainly cos of the ridiculously high falsetto vocals which shatter frail wine glasses from a distance of 100 yards away (do we still use yards?). So here I am confronted with the album which I wasn't particularly looking forward to. Domino do the busines...view item »

Wild Beasts
Through Dark Night

The second release from Leeds' Wild Beasts entitled "Through Dark Night" on Bad Sneakers but apparently signed to the Domino empire. Otherwise known as 'the guy w/ the wierd voice'. One of those offerings you'll either love or hate, the instrumentation reminds me of classic mid-80's j...view item »
