Ireland’s The Dudley Corporation have been off getting educated and procreating during the half-decade which has passed since their last record, but they’re straight out of the blocks on newie ‘Everyone Does Everything Wrong’ with a succession of short sharp indie pop songs which find a middle ground between Cable and This Ain’t Vegas - very much in that late ‘90s alterna-rock furrow with a slightly thin sound which makes you feel like you’re listening to three people playing their instruments rather than a slick and overpolished chunk of fancy rock.
At some points, most notably ‘Grey Lights’, they display a massive Pinback influence which I’m liking, although there are other points where the vocals are a little over-emotive, falling in some kind of Jeff Buckley/Muse territory in songs like ‘Useless Humans’ which will please some more than others. On the other side of the coin (and the record) ‘Little Blue’ has some serious chug-riffing fun which is offset well by the thin-sounding production, although I could live without the post-grungey ballad ‘Art Of Flight’ which follows it. Overall, though, this is a strong album of good old-fashioned indie rock which they used to make a lot more of 15 years ago. Fans of bands like Bivouac and Wooderson will be well into this I’m sure.
