- Curly Cuh by Slow Down Tallahassee
I've been listening to this whilst eating cheesy jacket spuds. I find such a food & music combo to be quite comforting & extra nutritious. I'm trying to recall their last album, I think it was a little more retro sounding & rudimentary than this album, their second & their last. Now with bands such as Standard Fare, Allo Darlin' (& across the Atlantic Dum Dum Girls) doing the rounds, SDT make a LOT more contemporary sense. I always liked her plaintive girl-next-door voice and now these latest songs have more depth, feeling & dynamism within & the drummachine/80s keyboard juxtaposition all comes together rather brilliantly on certain tracks. They don't sound so naive, never that that was an issue. Like their first outing, 'Curly Cuh' (No doubt to distinguish the difference from a kicking kuh?) this album is full of bittersweet, catchy indie pop bombs whose hooks will be comfortably settled in your mind immediately. Given that I like this even more than their debut and the songs get better & better as it progresses, it's kind of tragic that they've chosen now to call it a day! Well, it's better to leave a neatly formed legacy of great tunes that to wear yourself away at the grinding wheel of this particularly heartless industry. You know, sod it. They can have full marks, these Yorkshire girls & boy, they deserve it! Also for fans of Glasgow's underrated The Royal We I reckon.....
