9/10 Brian Staff review, 11 June 2010
Allo Darlin' is ex pat Aussie Elizabeth Morris and various cohorts who conspire to produce honest-to-goodness rattly twee guitar pop & atmospheric indie that succeeds on many levels. After the daft smasheroonie 'Henry Rollins Don't Dance', I wasn't expecting such a well rounded album from these peeps, more a shambling whimsical novelty hit 'n' miss affair. But the loose, exitable & naive songcraft displayed here screams fun, her perky ukelele playing also adds an extra endearing dimension to many songs There's certainly a strong Heavenly/Aislers Set vibe to these songs, Morris's earthy voice is very reminiscent of those classic 80s/90s tweepop gems and the tunes have tons of familiar, comforting hooks throughout to maintain your initial interest. Quality stuff!
