8/10 Mike Staff review, 09 May 2012
Not heard this King Tuff lad before. Judging by this 7” he makes melodic garagey power-pop which will appeal to fans of the likes of Ty Segall, Mikal Cronin, King Khan, Guided By Voices, Jay Reatard, etc...deceptively childlike little ditties packed with infectious tunes and jangly guitars and a sheen of lo-fi grime over everything so it doesn't look like they're trying too hard. My favourite of the two cuts on this 7” is actually B-side 'Hole In My Head' which has a real '90s post-grunge power-pop feel to it with its simple pop melody and bright indie rock tones. It's almost bring to mind a garagier version of The La's or something. Garage/jangle-pop fans won't be disappointed.
