6/10 Clinton Staff review, 06 December 2012
8am isn’t the best time to be reviewing records. I bet you think it’s all a lot more rock and roll than this, that we write them whilst having big listening parties complete with illegal substances, quavers and an endless supply of Longley Farm yoghurts to see us through.
I can’t decide if this record is either a) a bit sausage or that b) NOTHING sounds good at this hour or a bit of both. It’s sounding marginally better on second listen and a quick flick at previous reviews sees that Brian, Phil and our dear departed Brett have all given these the thumbs up in the past. What we have is a glam electro stomp with auto-tuned vocals that sound very French.
It’s kind of a cross between Daft Punk, Air, Go Kart Mozart and Relaxed Muscle. Certain songs like ‘Hairspray Heart’ are so bad that they have absolutely no redeeming features whatsoever yet ‘Psychic Love Damage’ (woah those titles!) introduce some sweet Beach House guitar and ‘80s bleeps making the whole thing much more appealing.
Similarly ‘We Burn’ channels the acoustic hop lollop of ‘90s Beck or The Beta Band but their insistence on autotuning everything within a five mile radius leaves you with a record that despite some catchy tunes is far too digitized and soulless for my consumption. Conversely Phil has just popped out from his lair to exclaim that he was really enjoying it and that the record is waking him up from his slumbers.
