10/10 Phil Staff review, 22 January 2009
You try searching for a Women CD! Anyhoo this album has been out for a while in the US and it's finally surfaced over here now it's all been Pitchforked up. The first time this was played on the stereo I was blown away by it. It's essentially a great experimental rock album but that makes me feel like a bit of a twat so I won't say that. Bits of Panda Bear, Liars, Sonic Youth and This Heat chucked into a massive experimental rock pot and stirred up by Pat Flegel, the frontman of Women. This is an adventurous album with some seriously good song writing. 'Black Rice' is a top tune sounding like a proper good 60's psych pop pastiche. There are some amazing tracks on here but I think this is an album to listen to from start to finish. The first time I heard it I was blown away and repeated listens bring out the subtleties and nuances which are there in spades. It's definitely a singular piece of work which needs to be listened to from start to end. It's a fucking great album and deffo a band to keep an eye over the coming years!!
