8/10 Clinton Staff review, 11 November 2010
Never judge a book by its cover, or a record for that matter. This superb LP does everything to put you off with its cover image of two topless men blowing saxophones. You immediately think jazz skronk. Inside though on its yellow vinyl you get a series of pop experiments with twisting sinewy guitar, jubilant vocals and all manner of sonic mayhem thrown across. Generally it sits in the post Animal Collective genre, marrying upbeat off kilter evocations, drifting instrumentals carved out of woodland, and throughout a kind of throw it all in, including the kitchen sink dynamic. Its rural sing song at times and recalls madcap Peel approved wanderers such as The Tinklers, Thinking Fellers and Wing Tip Sloat but sometimes there's a bit of cut and paste hip-hop in there and a strong African influence too. All over the place but certainly recommended.
