Bluebeard’s Rooms by David Cronenberg's Wife

9/10 Brian 07 August 2008
Not content with flooring me with their last single, David Cronenberg's Wife continue to conjure up the affectionate memories we all have for the John Peel show by being witty, twangy, additively catchy & resolutely old school in their vision of 21st century indie. Their debut album is here, 'Bluebeard's Rooms' and its blend of ramshackle, chiming guitars, post-rockabilly drums and sneery, slurred vocals is a delight. It's the absolute perfect distillation of The Fall, Clinic, I, Ludicrous, Quickspace & Half Man Half Biscuit. Caustic lyrics, an incessantly shit keyboard that makes my spine tingle & some of the best cynical vignettes i've heard in a long time. I'm absolutely itching to see these guys live, this debut album is one of the most heartening things i've heard in a long time - so many great influences & great songs (ranging between rattling Fall-esque stompers, sideways kraut/surf-rockers making space for whiskey stained ballads) from an individual, timeless sounding band! Includes both the smashing singles and a load of real quality album tracks that all stand up to be counted. Not many albums this strong being made in this decade so if yo trust me, you may well be rewarded!
