Race Horses are an odd bunch. Psych-glam britpop whimsy with a stuffed kingfisher adorning their album sleeve. They've definitely got something highly appealing about them but simultaneously do my nut in. I think it's that 'Cake' song that started it all. There's something archly wry about them, a bit like The Chap. I get a sense that they love The Kinks & Bowie but also worship outsider 90s bands such as The Auteurs. Fans of Lawrence from Felt's later projects may find something to love here, they've got a rich hazy radio pop sound nailed & their attention to detail is second to none. However, I suspect that they also wear ironic 2-tone y-fronts & collect old Bunty annuals & dreadful kitch rubbish from awful shops. I'd like them to prove me wrong. I thought there was something familiar about the vocalist's off-kilter falsetto style, Ant's just reminded me they're Welsh. so they're forgiven for being 70's revivalists then. All Welsh bands think it is still the fucking 70s, innit. ;0) 'Goodbye Falkenburg' is CD only on Fantastic Plastic
