Ten Kens are my kind of rock. Dense, bombastic & trippy. Coming somewhere between Nirvana, Holy Fuck & Arcade Fire on opener, the single 'Bearfight', this is great stuff.

Ten Kens are my kind of rock. Dense, bombastic & trippy. Coming somewhere between Nirvana, Holy Fuck & Arcade Fire on opener, the single 'Bearfight', this is great stuff. The widescreen drums crash away like a behemoth, the vocals are a muffled scree occasionally bursting into moon gazing woo-hoos and the guitars sound fuzzy & trashed. The pace slows slightly as we investigate further but the rich tapestry of slightly psychedelic tribally rock remains. I hate picking songs out for individual appraisal but flicking through you've got a cool album that references The Jesus Lizard & Liars on 'Spanish Fly', caustic garage punk-funk on 'The Alternative Biker' and maybe a cross between Mudhoney & Swirlies on 'Worthless & Oversimplified Ideas'. It's a right funky, loud mixed bag with vocal duties shared between boy & girl and many guitar toting territories explored, bits of nu-school shoegazery stuff layered with some right down-tuned grungy ideals and some really voodoo lullaby vocals. Top stuff, I'd have creamed myself back in the day for an album that sounded this much growling fun! This eponymous CD only album is out on Fat Cat....
