I've become the lucky recipient of the much maligned (by my colleagues!) Lonelady album. 'Nerve Up' seems to be a collection of sparse new-wavy pop songs with a very mild isolationist 80s touch.

I've become the lucky recipient of the much maligned (by my colleagues!) Lonelady album. 'Nerve Up' seems to be a collection of sparse new-wavy pop songs with a very mild isolationist 80s touch. Given her cooler-than-thou list of post-punk influences, the production on this album sounds far too clean & sterile. Some tracks like the single 'Intuition' come across like early 90s college femme-rock such as Tsunami or Crowsdell but with a rather limp drum machine. There's definitely a bit of defiant charm to these tunes however, I catch some spartan electro funk flavours to the title track but there's also the spectre of Alanis Morrisette hovering around the periphery of your conscience to contend with. 'Early The Haste Comes' reminds me a lot in spirit of the second Pylon album 'Chomp', frisky, hollowed guitar, breathless vocal & a plodding drum machine put-putting away. Listen carefully though, there's some really appealing flourishes to these tracks. She's obviously got a distinctive vision, i'd really like to hear this album again, but with the sound crawling forlornly through the fuzzy lo-fi murk of a broken cassette recording because there's definitely summat interesting there, lurking under the frustratingly bland sheen. Confused? Yes we are......
