After a slew of bizarre singles and compilation appearances Tyvek have finally got around to knocking out a debut full length L.P which is cunningly Self-titled and features an excellent interpretation of the group as mutated playdoh characters on the cover. Tyvek are a noisy bunch of proper post-punkers that have forged a new sound for themselves by gluing elements of The Mekons to The Urinals and running with it. This is a shambolically enjoyable musical statement that is both wildly discordant and amazingly tuneful. Songs start of strangely and get stranger. Riffs come in loosely and get looser. Vocals are hard to decider and appear to veer of in odd directions. I think this is gonna take a few listens to get the most out of it but on first impression this is a hugely enjoyable post-punk garage rock that will appeal to Fall fans, garage rockers, new york hipster types and anyone who enjoys a good shaky armed ruck on the dancefloor. Ace!
