9/10 Brett Staff review, 04 September 2008
It's all a bit Mogwai this week for me, up next we've got 'Towns on the Moon' by Aloha Hawaii, featuring Stuart Braithwaite and his old mucker Aidan Moffat (of Arab Strap and Lucky Pierre fame, of course). You should all read Aidan Moffat's sex advice columns on the Quietus, they're absolute gold and he's blatantly got a career wrapped up just in case he decides to pack in this music game. I'm far, far more into this than the Mogwai EP and it's many leagues ahead of that last thing they did as The Sick Anchors, it starts off amazingly with quite industrial beats and a mental little processed riff that morphs around until it's eventually complemented by some lovely string action. It's bright and sunny shit that totally lives up to the Hawaii thing.. The closest comparison I can think of is that track off the new Mogwai LP that they put up for free download, 'The Sun Smells Too Loud'. It's got definite hints of the Lucky Pierre stuff but most of all I'm reminded of Black Dice. The track on the other side is called 'I've Been Bad for Years and Years' that's also got a bit of a grinding factory feel to the drums, like the lead track it's not hugely abrasive but it works a treat along with the droning synths and squeeling guitar solos.. It's making me think of stuff like Cluster and Guru Guru, a real Krautrock feel. Things get taken down notch about halfway through and we go out all floaty and content. To round off the package it's all packaged up in an ace little retro design too. Brilliant, best thing I've heard on Chemikal Underground in years!
