8/10 Brian Staff review, 27 July 2011
Not sure what to say about this as it reminds me of about 6 different things at once. I've begun on the final track 'Weaving Spiders' as I like the title most and its relative long length, languishing over the entirety of a side, gives me a chance to study their sound. This band have a sort of shambling, jangly early-mid 80s sound with one of those singers who has a boomy yet heartbroken wail and the guitars naively dance around, meshing one second then firing off at obtuse angles, notes trailing into the ether. I've always liked that more chaotic, unpolished sound from indie bands and although there's nothing new to report here, this single has a bit more charm and spirit that some of the recent Captured Tracks efforts. All three tracks gallop and stumble along in a kind of discordant, chiming hazy blur, blunted drums carrying the whole wobbly murk with aplomb. The production is a bit rough 'n' ready - rumbling, muffled and scratchy - but of course that just totally adds to the appeal, there are loads of great hooks, vision and energy in these tracks!
