8/10 Mike Staff review, 08 February 2013

It's getting on for 20 years since Milky Wimpshake put out their first (cassette) album, and now here they are with their fifth! MBV would call that productive, Ty Segall would call it lazy, you make up your own mind. Anyway, you probably know what to expect from this - it's a collection of slightly twee indie pop with a healthy dose of C86 shamble, all recorded in a single day. It's not as lo-fi as I thought it might be, though - it's well mixed and recorded and everything can be heard loud and clear.

Those already familiar with the band, which will probably be most of you by now, will pretty much know what to expect here. Charming, direct pop songs with bittersweet, sometimes comical lyrics, falling somewhere between Half Man Half Biscuit and Wild Billy Childish, with a hint of The Kinks.

To be honest, I've been finding myself having less and less patience for this type of '90s ramshackle earnestness, but it's simple and likeable and I feel like I've heard half these melodies already. There's something strangely timeless and comforting about it, more than any of these slightly kitsch '90s style indie bands I've heard trying to do the same thing lately. Give me this lot over the Lovely Eggs any day.
