Apparently this band contain ex-members of the there-one-minute-gone-the-next Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong, a band so ridiculously monikered they were thrown onto the “new wave of Britpop” dump even before their hapless major label pluggers could even be arsed releasing their debut album. Let's hope Heavenly treat the vastly superior Toy a little better eh? What do this band do then? Well, they make trippy psych-krautrock pop like every other fucker at the moment don't they? Also, they do it really well, weighing in some place between Eat Lights Become Lights, Appliance, Simian and The House of Love. That could spell utter disaster if the ingredients weren't mixed just so succinctly to create a crisp post-modern sound. 'Motoring' really does recall old Mute hopefuls Appliance a great deal but with a moto-rockin' and propulsive attitude. Not to mention hook-laden radio play potential! For some reason I prefer the understated flip 'When I Went Back', a slower more experimental slice of lullaby-esque psych-whimsy allows the simple unfussy grooves room to maneuver, the fey mantra-like dreamy vocals to ride these languid minimal melodies, dinky guitar lines and warm fuzz organ and although the production is smooth and polished the subtleties and delights both songs here have to offer are many. Erland and the Carnival fans'll like bits of this I'm positive.
