6/10 Brian Staff review, 23 June 2011

From Kidderminster, R'n'R capital of the UK, come these Outdoor Types. Once the opener gets kicking I'm immediately transported to the bar at a Wonder Stuff gig in 1989. They've got that big catchy old indie sound, you see, from when I were a kid and that. Rowdy vocals and slightly clunky yet anthemic songs played with passion and gusto. I heard the last single but wasn't keen - this album is loads better with some real spirit and endearing, quirky melodies. Surprisingly it's also very powerfully produced by someone who obviously knows what they're doing, I quickly did some more detective work and discovered they were originally peddling a more folk-rock type of affair and our Mingus Rude reviewed them way back in '07! They definitely blend some worthy styles with even light mariachi and flamenco touches here and there. They've certainly got a homely "local-band" touch but sound incredibly proficient with an endearing quirky edge. It's the sound of slightly strange middle-aged men rocking out and not really giving too much of a shit what folk think. They certainly sound super fun and are probably way more sussed than many a fresh-faced modern 'indie' troupe.
