Phil said that these lot are supposed to sound like Spacemen 3 but come across a bit more REM. I see what he’s saying. The opening track sounds like the type of bands who, in the late ‘80s, heard the REM sound and thought if we just rock it up a bit we’ll get some mainstream success - Dreams So Real or Toad The Wet Sprocket anyone? Actually Winter Hours made a good stab at this type of sound until one of them died and scuppered the whole thing.

It certainly lacks that kind of subtlety and rocks along in a more balls out meat and potatoes manner in the mid-ground between Oasis and Brian Jonestown Massacre - veering slightly too close to the former for comfort at times with big rock drums, lashings of guitars and FM friendly vocals. But not bad at all just a little mainstream and so early-‘90s-American-major-label-alternative-rock sounding that it makes me wonder if a revival is in the air.

‘Either Way’ is the type of tune that will appeal to people who thought Stipe was just a little bit weird but liked the raw, rock side of what they did. A little Pearl Jam I suppose in places but Spaceman 3? Elements in the droney, psyche delivery perhaps but more akin to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and their ilk. A good record, not entirely to my taste but you can’t argue with the quality. Top marks for the record company name though.
