9/10 Brian Staff review, 25 February 2010
Absolutely love this record so far, it's perfect English bedroom pop - this feller Simon Break possesses a plaintive, half spoken sing-song vocal style (kinda like a male Lily Allen!) but he makes this fizzing, joyous music that sounds like a very continental version of Magnetic Fields - highly melodic DIY pop tinged with some embryonic late 70s Kraut twist; also there's a new-wave pop heart beating away under all this. The songs can veer from kitch library glam to sad-eyed dream-pop vignettes. I'm reminded in a way of both Momus & Felix Kubin, this arch blending of commercial electronic pop with a very individualistic heart & soul. One of the nicest surprises of the year so far, style-wise this has Ant recalling the electro-pop poetry of The Vichy Government whilst Brett is haunted by an unholy marriage between David Tibet & Ian Broudie in the vocals.
