6/10 Clinton Staff review, 24 June 2011
This is a grab bag mix of various post rock sounds with bizarre song titles and an even more oddball sleeve. It's a compilation of various tracks the band have released over the last 10 years on singles and compilations. The main man Brian McKenzie plays a variety of instruments and constructs some of his compositions from lifting sounds from like minded people such as Aarktica. Good to hear an album open with a cock and from there on the music ranges from grand post rock in the vein of Her Name is Calla, cinematic Morricone-ish guitar twangs, some of it is your standard cavernous post rock fare but at least two tracks delve into lovely Durutti Column-esque glacial instrumentals and elsewhere we get lovely female vocal loops and Cocteau Twins style bass and drum machine.
