8/10 Phil Staff review, 08 September 2011
Weirdly I was listening to this thinking it sounds a bit like PJ Harvey. I thought I'd gem up and see what the crack is with it and lo and behold it's produced by John Parish. I like it when my instincts are right (doesn't happen too often!). They've departed from their more acoustic sound for a more stripped back indie rock approach. I think it works better as well as I wasn't keen on the last album but this sound suits the songwriting more. There's lots of nice unusual bits just appearing in the middle of nowhere which keeps you on your toes. What separates this from more trad indie rock records is that the drumming is well interesting. Lots of strange beats and unusual fills cropping up all over the place. A few of the songs remind me a bit of the Tune-yards but I think that's to do with the interesting drumming and female vocals (though they're nowhere near as yelpy!). So with the unusual arrangements, interesting drumming and top production from John Parish we're onto a winner here I reckon!
