8/10 Clinton Staff review, 15 June 2012

You’d never think that this was the drummer/percussionist from Akron Family - its a pure burst of pop sunshine to blast away the grimy, grey, wet shit that passes for British weather these days. First up ‘The Anatomy of Now’ strikes up a Paul Simon circa ‘Graceland’ acapella before launching into a bouncy  Why? like backpack indie tune with African style guitar lead but not self consciously so. Impressively, the tuneful nature continues into  ‘Call to Be’ which marries the sound of Animal Collectives ‘Merriweather Post Pavillion’ with a tune that rivals the skyscraping melodies of They Might be Giants, The Shins  or Pinback.

These opening tracks truly soar  - its kind of a prozac-fuelled  romp through the best bits of recent-ish US indie  - full of instantly hummable melodies, polished (but not overly so) production. The album certainly sounds top heavy, a few tracks in the ecstatic instantly memorable pop begins to turn a little more melancholy, sounding a little more Washed Out and a little less impressive. The saxophone skronk of ‘Untitled no 1’ can be routinely ignored but ‘Delicate Suitor’ provides a different hue, staccato (fake) strings and sun dappled, late afternoon melodies. Slightly hit and miss but ‘Call to Be’ sounds like a surefire hit to these ears and the remainder is certainly well worth checking out.
