Fiery Furnaces are that rare beast of a band that are loved by a large pocket of total weirdos globally, whilst repelling just about everybody else with both a/ ears and b/ a brain. The way they schizophrenically combine progressive lo-fi pop, blues balladery, rattly caberet rock & tedious 70's AOR should be commended but I constantly feel like my ears are being relentlessly shat in.

Fiery Furnaces are that rare beast of a band that are loved by a large pocket of total weirdos globally, whilst repelling just about everybody else with both a/ ears and b/ a brain. The way they schizophrenically combine progressive lo-fi pop, blues balladery, rattly caberet rock & tedious 70's AOR should be commended but I constantly feel like my ears are being relentlessly shat in. They bring to mind the wrong part of the 70s for me, really, where Billy Joel & The Carpenters ruled the airwaves. I'm constantly impressed at their virtuosity but my appreciation is always dashed by the heavily contrived lyrical style (bad Janis Joplin-isms) and the indulgent lounge schtick they employ. I remember a couple of early singles being quite ecstatic, joyous affairs but although they possess a singularly distinctive style in today's ever expanding/diluted "marketplace", i'm gonna have to join the ranks of naysayers who would like to stick this oddball pair right inside said Fiery Furnace. 'I'm Going Away' (wish they would) is out on fat vinyl & replica CD through Thrill Jockey
