6/10 Clinton Staff review, 21 January 2011

I had a dream last night that I owned a rabbit and I went away for the weekend and forgot to feed it. When I got back it had been forced to eat its own ears. So is it just a coincidence that I get the new Sore Eros album to review? (boom boom!). Its currently playing and what I'm thinking about is this:- isn't The Wire's so called 'hypnagogic' pigeon-hole just a euphemism for 'badly recorded'? As I've said a billion times before its much much easier to hide music in shards of hiss and distortion rather than to just write decent fucking songs in the first place. It strikes me on first listen that Sore Eros aren't really that good. The album is appallingly recorded, vocals are annoyingly flat throughout, instrumentation rudimentary and songs are non existent. They faff about with the vocals effects a bit and wander off into experimental cul de sacs so that presumably makes the whole venture ok. I may be proved embarrassingly wrong on repeated plays as there are shards of hope on 'Make it Louder' where the fog clears and they inject some melody into the thing but the initial impression is rather disappointing.
