10/10 Mike Staff review, 05 May 2011
Hurrah! A new Oh Sees record from those ever reliable folks at In The Red. It's hard to come up with anything new to say about this band. You're probably already familiar with them, they've been at the forefront of this latest garage rock boom for some time, but if not this is as good a time as any to get acquainted. This is an album full of deceptively simple garage pop ditties whose delivery and throwaway lyrics kind of remind me of the Frogs in places, but with beautifully 60s psych-inflected arrangements and lots of clattery lo-fi charm. It's pretty varied stuff; everything from ballads to scratchy noise-punk. Ty Segall crops up on a couple of tracks which makes sense because that album he did last year had a very similar kind of charm to it. Everything you want from Thee Oh Sees, really - childish but not puerile, noisy but tuneful, psychedelic but concise, obnoxious but lovely.
