9/10 Mike Staff review, 11 July 2013

Sometimes you put on a record and you can just feel the stress flow out of your body, trickling warmly down your limbs into the ground. This is one of those, combining Alex Bleeker & The Freaks, Woods, Real Estate style slacker pop with a warm shambling Aussie style delivery which reminds me of the ascendant Scott & Charlene’s Wedding but much more laid back and stoned. Simple and unaffected charm.

Well after that initial outburst I went and checked out the press release and as fate would have it this lot are actually led by another Aussie transplanted to New York, Panel of Judges’ Dion Nania, and he even played lead guitar in the aforementioned S&CW. Mr Nania certainly has an ear for a pop tune and a great hazy reverbed garage pop aesthetic, I’m pretty much instantly in love with this.

It may meander a little at the start of the second side and duck the full marks I was starting to think it had in the bag (although the searing noise-pop sugar rush of ‘Just One’ and dislocated dream-pop of ‘World Without Love’ do throw some interesting new ingredients into the bag before my attention starts to drift), but if you like any of the aforementioned bands or stuff like Big Troubles and Triptides and Ducktails when he’s doing his slacker pop thing, this is an essential listen. Free Time aren’t reinventing the wheel, but they have certainly made an exceptionally fine wheel.
