9/10 Clinton Staff review, 10 May 2013

One of those names I’ve seen about for ages yet never heard. Despite my employ in a record emporium, its very easy to miss out on loads of great stuff if you are looking the other way, which I normally am, at a tree or the viaduct. This is the latest album in the lifetime of Tim (no relation to Elvis or Reg) Presley and its a lovely surprise to hear music like this being made by the young people of today. The primary influence has to be Syd Barrett. Its there in the oddball song structure, its there in the laconic vocal delivery, the clipped vowels, the heavily strummed acoustic guitars, the psych wig outs.

The first two tunes are reedy interpretations of ‘Madcap Laughs’ era, while single ‘Pink Gorilla’ is a madcap psych jam more akin to Ty Segall and the hoards of lo-fi mavericks. Seemingly recorded in the lid of a lawnmower, the album produces the kind of wildly disjointed pop that the kids know and love but thankfully marries them to the sort of lopsided melodies us old timers remember from the likes of Nick Nicely and Robyn Hitchcock and have found more recently in Tame Impala. Not afraid to throw a guitar solo in where its not needed or required, theres plenty of detrius in the mix to keep the ear glued to the stereo awaiting the next bit of lunacy pop. Its messy of course but it sits in the exact mid point where Syd Barrett meets Ariel Pink meets Ty Segall so this is as must. A MUST I TELL YOU!!
