8/10 Brian Staff review, 29 July 2010
These guys stick safely to a kind of fuzzed-out psych/shoegaze shimmer on their debut album. And although i've heard plenty of Primal Scream or BJM records in my life, The Tamborines still successfully kick out a worthy racket. They often emulate the sound of the classic Creation bands - the opener reminds me of mid-period Telescopes - but you can tell that their fanbase will also consist of Byrds, Ride, Spacemen 3 & Oasis worshippers. The fourth track sounds like a sleepy take on The Clean and has an exotic French title before the amped-up distorted guitars return on 'Falling Slowly' - surfing along on the crest of this Dandy Warhols-alike choon are also a charmingly weedy organ, drawly lolloping vocals & countless shards of ear-testing JAMC Jr. style feedback. God it makes me feel 18 again this CD.
