8/10 Ant Staff review, 20 May 2011
More action from the duo of Ryan Garbes and Shawn Reed which continues their vision of slightly skewed, semi lo-fi pop music. This is their debut release for the mighty fine De-Stijl imprint and follows up on cool releases for Not Not Fun and Night people. Indeed this the their third full length record and it plays very much on the strength of previous records, i.e. quality drums (drum machines), organs/synths and all that good stuff. They have some very charming primitive electro melodies on display here as well as a lush early Factory Records charm. A couple of the tracks create visions of early New Order being re-imagined by Skanfrom. A distinct innocence and lack of pretension emerge as the LP progresses and the balance of raw semi-bedroom 4-track style energy/accomplished songwriting really hits the nail right on the head. The tracks are slow burners that reveal more and more beauty on repeated plays. The duo seem to gel effortlessly, riding the same plains to create a full and impressive vision of pop music. This straddles the jam vs fully focused and realized train with ease, which means you're only kinda half know where the tracks will go. If the whole music thing was to be declared as good vs evil then these would be the good guys.
