8/10 Brian Staff review, 23 August 2011
Portlanders Nature are the latest signings to this cute and enigmatic US indie. Is it just me or are any of you slightly disappointed when American 7"s don't have big holes in the middle you can stick your nose through? I find it most satisfying. I mean, surely everyone has a big flashing wurlitzer in their front room chugging out ghostly hits like that stupid car from that stupid Stephen King book Cujo. You know, the one about the rabid dog on wheels with a haunted stereo in its head? Oh I've lost the plot haven't I? Anyway, digression and idiocy aside, this has a big hole in the middle which makes me really happy and the music is more of that rattly reverb-drenched lo-fi angular ghost-pop with smudged, unintelligible female vocals. 'Workout' doesn't have that much of a tune and chuffs along happily without falling to bits. That's all you can ask from this tangle of twangy muffled loveliness. The flip is even more of a beautiful stumbling blurred dirge. Try saying that really quickly 20 times when inebriated. If you like all that stuff that I like, y' know, ace grrrrl bands such as Grass Widow and Wetdog then this eerie shambler will wet yer dry bits.
