8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 30 May 2012
I’ve said this before but Underwater Peoples seem incapable of putting out bad records. Everything on the label so far has been a winner and I’m pleased to report the slate is still clean with the release of The Memories’ self-titled debut.
First up, I can’t believe The Memories has never been used as a band name before. It’s a totally classic sounding psychy name that I wished I’d thought to use. The Memories specialise in bugged out psych-pop of the lo-fi variety. Their debut sounds like it was recorded late at night in a small apartment space accompanied by the consumption of muchos ale and spliff-o. In fact, the group thank ‘Whiskey, Weed and Women’ on the back sleeve which confirms the suspicion that these lads are most likely baked, pizza loving party dudes.
The music here veers from knowingly self-deprecating daftness and surprisingly effective psych-pop all drenched in reverb and cheap effects. They’re basically decent pop songwriters with slacker attitude rooted deep within their collective psyche. Definitely on a Fergus & Geronimo/Beets/Psychedelic Horseshit tip and pretty much in keeping with the more tongue-in-cheek elements of the Hardly Art roster. It’s a 45 RPM LP too...nice.
