This album might force me to have to reconsider my 'never trust a band named after an album or song' rule. Initial misgivings about the Mogwai stealing name and opening burst of noise fade quickly as the title track bursts through the stereo. It's a fab blast of '60's influenced pop with a garagey reverby feel, similar to Brian Jonestown Massacre or early Lily's, yet with a shoegaze sludge which recalls the fantastic pre 'Isn't Anything' My Bloody Valentine. 'Black Lodge' revives the sound of early Ride with Byrdsian harmonies sparring with noisy guitars and a Phil Spector-ish production. The whole thing is drenched in cavernous sound, and reminds me of the best bits of the patchy Serena Maneesh albums and as they are Scandinavian I'll drop in the all-too-obvious Mew comparison! On first pickings this sounds an excellent record and could become a shoegaze classic if the press pick up on it. Watch this space!
