'Lostness'?? Is that a word? I don't know but that's perhaps the only misstep here as once you put the CD in the player (doesn't have the same ring to needle on the record does it?), instantly what flows out the speakers is something that a lot of people will find very special indeed. Firstly it's incredibly noisy. The distorted guitars thrash away in a style that recalls not only the early noisy Jesus and Mary Chain, The Cramps, but more recently A Place to Bury Strangers and The Horrors' high water mark 'Primary Colours'. Yet it's much MUCH more tribal - a gritty, grimy, grubby dark record. On 'All Dead (for the last 24 miles)' the simple drum machine recalls Suicide or The Normal but the guitars are incendiary in a way Dirty Beaches can only dream of. They certainly know their way around their effects pedal and the guitars are seriously up front and right in your face in a way little other modern music manages to do where time after time the recorded sound of bands of this ilk can be somehow muted. As mentioned, their influences are fairly obvious and it's at about this point that I will make the obligatory Spacemen 3 mention but there's one band they sound very similar to...Snapper. A fantastic group of New Zealand drug addicts whose 'Shotgun Blossom' is one of the few albums I can recall which matches this for incendiary primal noise and whole hearted intensity. With a 9/10 Drowned in Sound review under their belts this could be one of those word of mouth classics so you'd better get on board quick.
