9/10 Mike Staff review, 25 April 2012

Dan Melchior is back with five brand new songs on this leopard claw bay-related 12” EP on Moniker. On the first side we've got the plodding acoustic title track and then a more upbeat bit of weirdo lo-fi pop called 'Strange Antennae' with a weird fluttering singing-through-a-fan effect on the vocals and some admirably gnarly trebly guitar spitting solos all over the place. Total garage fun and probably my favourite cut on the disc. Flip it and bluesy shuffle 'Skyscraper Shoes' reminds me of weird kids' tapes I used to listen to when I was a real life kid. It's striking me more than ever before how similar his irreverent and playful songwriting style is to Ian Dury, but the delivery is much more nonchalant and kind of like Syd Barrett or maybe Connan Mockasin. 'C Beams' is next up, and it's really short and weird, just a barely-there bit of drone and vocal weirdness leading us up to closer 'Wild Starlet Shuffle', with its easy groove and childish possibly ad-libbed lyrics bring a casual humour to proceedings, and then going on to confuse you with a guitar solo so weird and scratchy and minimal that I'm still questioning whether I can actually call it a guitar solo. I think I can though. Excellent work once again from Mr Melchior.
