- I Get High If You Get High by Lola Colt

I like the name of this single. ‘I get High if you get High’. I do enjoy getting high. Listening to it, it’s quite a noisy number with lots of sheet-metal guitar drones and a hollering lady from the PJ Harvey/Zola Jesus/VV school of gothy exhortations. The backing really is admirably noisy, and there’s an excellent effect where it keeps gathering intensity until the strident vocals are all but obscured in a primitive anthemic scree. This is kind of like what I hoped Carmen Villain would sound like.
On the other side ‘Boom Boom Blasphemy’ heads further into spaghetti western territory, like The Kills channelling Ennio Morricone, but still with these layered and splintered guitar tones giving it a drifty undercurrent which brings to mind S ND Y P RL RS or even Grouper. As long as big-lunged Zola Jesus-ish vocals aren’t offputting to you there’s a lot to like about this, although such an expansive sound may prove a bit much on a longer record. I suppose time will tell about that, but as a single this is a solid mix of post-punky pop and carefully crafted abrasive noise. I like it much more than Savages.
9/10 RobertK. Customer review, 17th February 2014
Great melange of Country/Americana rock a la "16 Horsepower" and Riot Grrrl power (owed to the female vocals) which makes this my personal 7" release favourite in 2013. The b side steps even further into Country rock territory, adding a hint of The Gun Club. And who can resist a white colour vinyl release?
