I missed these live in action the other day so only have my imagination instead of memories to go by when I dream of Frankie Rose battering her skins in a proper voodoo garage style. I think as far as forging their own creaky, dusty take on 60's flecked indie rock they've done yet another admirable job. Much like on their debut, this NY crew have penned a load of songs that seep into your mind gradually, songs that have as much in common with The Byrds & The Velvets as they have with 80s jangly dreamers Close Lobsters, the brittle sadness of some JAMC material or basically any band that have that sleepy, tangled rickenbacker element. That there's now a whole raft of bands such as The Mantles & The Fresh & Onlys writing wonderful slow-burning tunes that have a distinctly shambling, faded & ghostly aspect with those delicious spine-tingling chord changes! Not to mention probably tons of new American bands that now adopt a low, blurred funereal moan in the place of a regular vocal. That deserves a Joy Division comparison even! We only get to the single by track 7 and it comes as quite a surprise like it's dumped in there as an afterthought, like "let's put summat a bit chirpier in there!!" Forever buried under a faint veil of sonic murk, this band aren't going for the dollar like contemporaries TPOBPAH. This is the real deal, they're sticking rigidly to their guns and have recorded another shimmering, spectral classic!
