8/10 Clinton 18 February 2011

Chaz Bundick stunned a lot of people with his 'Causers Of This' album in 2010, an intoxicating brew of 80's yacht rock, shoegaze and Prefuse 73 style bedroom electronica. It's taken him less than a year to unleash this follow up and the press chatter is generally spot on in that its a higher fidelity collection of songs that marries shoegaze and funk together as if it's the most natural thing in the world. The songs are clearer, more distinct, the vocals less manipulated and at various points the Gallic influence of Stereolab comes into view as do acoustic guitars and real instruments rather than samples and bedroom synths. 'Causers of This' took a while to reveal its colours and this is a similar collection in that it's hard to get a grip of initiall,y but repeated plays reveal that the melodies are strong and the increasing use of Stevie Wonder style bubbling synths and funky basslines thankfully never take it into Jamiroquai territory - thank God but the overall feel is Stevie Wonder as produced by 'Friends' era Brian Wilson, i.e something that could possibly be the soundtrack to the summer.
