6/10 Mike Staff review, 23 May 2012

Bit of a head-scratcher, this. Norwegian jazz/r'n'b types The Loch Ness Mouse are dropping a couple of tracks. The A side starts out pretty jazzy but then quickly transforms into quite a poppy old-style r'n'b/psychedelic pop type number with gospelly vocal harmonies and stuff. It's reminding me of The Who but with saxophones. Pretty weird.

Flip it and 'Kunming' is a longish instrumental which goes through various moods with a bit of an '80s jazz feel to it. Sometimes it's smooth and loungey, sometimes melodic, free-flowing and upbeat, and there's a nice punchy ending. It can sound a bit too much like a house band you'd see playing in some posh hotel but it's pretty accomplished and slick if that's what you're into. I'm enjoying the more song-based A side better myself.

It's interesting enough for what it is but doesn't seem to have that modern forward-thinking edge that some of their local contemporaries (Hedvig Mollestad, Motorpsycho, Jaga Jazzist, etc) have. Seems a little dated and rough-and-ready in comparison but doesn't offend me either.


10/10 Eamonn Customer review, 16th June 2012

'The Who with saxaphones!?' - sounds fuckin terrible...

Must have been a whole different record you've been listening to mate  :)  Brush up on your fusion sounds maybe,
