8/10 Brett Staff review, 18 February 2010
Apparently this lot are the first British band to be signed to Jagjaguwar. "BIG WOW" I hear you say but still, I thought it was worth mentioning. I kinda knew what to expect from these guys based on past releases and that Laughing Windows thing which featured one of the members but for the uninitiated I shall describe them. Erm.. It's actually quite hard because they combine so many little bits from classic bands of the 60s and 70s but don't sound completely like any of them. There's a bit of your blues rock, a bit of your Gong-y Canterbury thing, a little touch of the Krautrock jam bands, a tinge of Incredible String Band-style psychedelic folk and LOADS more. Basically this sounds like it was recorded on vintage tapes with vintage guitars on vintage amps with vintage dust. Retro but nice.
