8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 09 December 2010
Sam Mehran a.k.a. Sam Meringue returns with another dose of Outer Limits Recordings fun. 'Julie' is Meringue's British power pop ballad that dwells on dramatic themes of love/suicide/reincarnation etc. By comparison to previous O.L.R. releases this effort is very much consistent with the concept of a proper pop song, featuring coherent vocals and everything. B-side 'Plastik Child' maintains the pop song theme with an E.L.O.-aping fun pop tune. Both of these tracks suggest a departure from previously noise-oriented experimental efforts into equally experimental yet totally pop-driven sounds. These tracks have accompanying videos which you can find up on Youtube. They are totally entertaining efforts with guest appearances from all sorts of OESB characters. Worth checking just to hear the next single 'I Need My TV' which is totally sweet. Hard to believe this guy used to be in Test Icicles!! He's a versatile artist fo' sure. Shhheeeeeeeiit.
