8/10 Brian Staff review, 05 May 2011
If I was the bass player in Pocahaunted I'd be well pleased. Because unlike being the bass player in most bands (I.E. a quiet introverted sensitive kind or a walking penis with wanky hair) you actually get a record deal! JUST FOR BEING THE BASS PLAYER OUTTA POCA-blinking-HAUNTED!! OK, she's from L.A. and every fucker gets a deal in L.A. maaan.... What is this Diva LP like anyway? Hazy, tribal, aquatic, bloopy, tropical, scratchy & off-kilter. Somewhere between Zola Jesus, Rainbow Arabia, Sun Araw, LA Vampires & erm.... the more lolloping end of POCA-freakin'-HAUNTED maybe? You know that trippy, dubbed-out drugged-up improv groove that snakes deliriously around your conscience. The second side begins with a track that sounds like Broadcast falling out of a smoky harem before collapsing into yet more sultry, freeform whacked-out retro/DIY grooves. An hugely engaging LP indeed, but beware, this as a clear glitter vinyl pressing so if you're a complete audiophile you may find yourself grimacing a little at the sound of a tiny, invisible kitten playing with some screwed-up cellophane beneath the psychedelic melee!!
