8/10 Clinton Staff review, 30 November 2012
A retro CD single type thing for you from Leeds popsters The Blanche Hudson Weekend. Opener ‘Consume Me’ uses the bass line from Joy Division’s ‘Isolation’ but adds angry female vocals. She’s really fuming about something or other amidst the noisy guitars and thrashing drums.
I’m happier with ‘Divided’ which uses a breathier vocal style and has a more electronic feel to the proceedings with fuzzy synths and drum machine to the fore, this time utilising the melody from the verses of James’s ‘Sit Down’. The final tune ‘Some Kind of Freedom’ is simple and stripped back with just organ and almost whispered vocals. A very limited (to 200) taster for their new album with tracks 2 and 3 exclusive to this release.
