When we get records with the HoZac label on I tend to expect some kind of grizzled outsider punk business, but this LP is anything but that, instead having musicians with punk pedigree (counting K-Holes and ex-Black Lips among their number in singer-guitarists Jack and Julie Hines) making deliciously spooky Americana with Lynchian undertones and timeless melodies (some of which sail perilously close to existing well known melodies, take ‘Louise, Louise’’s thinly-veiled ‘I’m Your Man’ or ‘Bravewolf’’s alterna-’Where Did You Sleep Last Night’), all delivered with a louche calm. Part-Leonard Cohen, Part-Cocteau Twins, part-serial killer methodically sharpening his knives.
There’s a strangely mythical quality to the songs that lends them an instant familiarity that’s comforting despite the sombre mood of the record. A kind of sleepy melancholy which reminds me of Daughn Gibson’s recent solo offering or Deerhunter’s surf-reverbed slower numbers. Shimmering, wibbly, spectral Americana-pop done particularly well.
