I don't know who these people are and nor do I care but I'm liking this slab o' wax. The first track here is magnificent. A haunting guitar meander with nods towards Ducktails and the like. Dreamy, simple guitar arpeggio's lost in the ether between Vini Reilly's hair and Chessie's more melodic, less beat driven instrumental compositions.
From there on a sleepy stoned voice comes into the equation, I would have never thought that this voice came out of that pale, fiery headed lad I've been reading about in the smug, middle class newspapers. It's deep, London accented, with a bit of Joe Strummer/Mick Jones in there but also a profound hip hop influence, the music is interesting and edgy enough to be hauled off in disgrace at dinner parties, this is none of your James Blake shit, the music is lovely and blurry, the best comparison from a quick web scrat saw Rolling Stone suggest it was like waking up at the dentists after being heavily sedated. The overall feel is of a slurred, heavily medicated chap waking up and tinkering around with some guitar chords and hip hop beats, dousing the thing in echo and drifting back to bed.
