6/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 15 November 2012
Here’s a band on 4AD I’ve never heard of before, Indians, with a song called ‘Cakelakers’ which somewhat seasonably is reminding me a great deal of the popular Christmas carol ‘Joy To The World’. I’m genuinely uncertain as to whether this is intentional. It’s an acoustic number with plenty of jangle, soft vocals, nice roomy reverb and occasional added depth courtesy of some violins. It really does sound like a Christmas song. It doesn’t really sound like it’s on 4AD...On the split there’s a “Live 4AD Session” version of a plaintive Iron & Wine-esque number called ‘I Am Haunted’ which is a pleasant strummer and as you would expect a little bit spooky and ethereal. If you’re into the acoustic neofolky type stuff then you’ll probably have a pretty nice time with this one.
