8/10 Clinton Staff review, 21 April 2011
This is a funny one, can't see much info anywhere on t'internet......hang on ...I can't find me fucking banana........ ah there it is.....anyway its an oddball brew of francophile pop that most recalls 70's nutcase's Henry Cow. Harpsichord laden ditty's with owl like high pitched female vocals, at times recalling Broadcast but generally less evocative and more on the folky end of things. They've obviously been listening to their United States of America from the sounds of the drifting 'Nothing Worth Keeping is Easy to Hold on to', elsewhere there are accordions aplenty, tinkling glockenspiels, theramins and vocals in French. I'm also reminded at times of Tom Waits and the more exotic end of the Raincoats. So a mixed confection, a few more hooks wouldn't go amiss but overall they know their thing and they do that thing rather well.
