Quite taken with this lavish 12"/CD set from Favours For Sailors called Furious Sons. They apparently met in Cornwall yet couldn't sound more Californian college rock. Mid-period Pavement, Television, later GBV, Sammy USA & early Jet Plane Landing spring to mind etc. A 6 track collection of chugging, hugely melodic good-time indie rock loaded with cracking guitar hooks and duelling lines that go ZINNNGGG all over the shop, the bouncy West coast style lyrics that remind me during 'No Room At the Buffet' of the spirit of the first Weezer album, Franz at their sunniest or Lemonheads at their most effortless. The quality of tunesmithery throughout is astoundingly high. It's an old classic sound they're mining but they do it with such aplomb and easygoing love - these tremendously fine tunes are stand-alone slacker pop gems. Seriously, it took two hours for us to wade through a pile of excrement posing as new releases to get to this and the moment these songs spat out of the speakers, I knew we had reached a better land where everything's cool forever. Lovely gatefold package, like those Situationistitsistists 10"s with the CD counterpart mounted on a "nipple". Yum!
