9/10 Mike Staff review, 11 July 2013

Phil has mentioned to me a couple of times already that he likes this record so I have high expectations. Phil’s a man who has heard a lot of records, you see. He’s right too, it’s really nice, running the gamut of emotional manipulation from understated but celebratory garage pop like a nerdy cross between Mikal Cronin and Weezer, downtrodden sadpop like Sparklehorse, and hopeful naive uplift like Grandaddy or the Flaming Lips.

 

Particular highlights include the lively one-two of ‘Bored Again’ and ‘Origami’ at the start of the second side, with the latter’s earnest vocals, fizzy guitars and cheeky handclaps putting it in blatant summer anthem territory, one of those songs you can expect to hear everywhere you go until you never want to hear it again. In the context of the more reflective pop on this record, though, it’s a welcome burst of energy. The rest of the album is lovely too, though, with the plenty of moments of sublime beauty for fans of hangdog mumblepop and subtly uplifting arrangements.
