I go through so many phases with this band that I’m not sure who I actually am anymore, never mind them. The last album I largely hated but it was also the first one to prick up the ears of our long-suffering Clint. So, I put this limited seven inch on and it’s a fucking strutting lounge disco song but done so, so well that you cannot help but admire them for trying a fresh jacket on!
Yeah, they always liked dipping their toes into other areas such as seventies soul did t’Sticks and Staples’s rich love-lorn burr of a voice is as familiar and comforting here as it ever was. But that bass-line is decidedly funky, the guitar has that trebly washy wah-wah blur to it and those drums are spilling pure hi-hat disco fever, albeit at a pace old ladies could sway to. This track is proper swinging and almost glitzy! I really don’t know what to make of it, I dig the implicit Hammond organ towards the end but I’m also left confused, frightened and adrift.
Yet this is Tindersticks after all and it somehow retains all that is great by them, probably because that old tatty velvet glove of a voice still resonates so powerfully with me, it’s like a crocheted comfort blanket you had as a tiny kid but his voice doesn’t stink of piss, just cheap whisky and heartbreak. Instrumental on the flip, what bloody use that is I dunno.
