7/10 Clinton Staff review, 23 August 2013

The Proper Ornaments comprise of Veronica Falls man James Hoare alongside another man from Argentina, single-handedly attempting to thaw Anglo-Argentinian relations with their brand of homespun ‘60s influenced pop music. They really do sound like some long lost C86 era group with their brittle compositions, thin harmonies and drum machine and guitar jangle approach.

Opener ‘Waiting for The Summer’ is an outrageously addictive reverb drenched song recalling the great early Go-Betweens efforts like ‘The Sound of Rain’. Also rather Go-Betweens ish is ‘Who Thought’ which is a beautiful slice of guitar pop with neat harmonies and lovingly strummed acoustic guitars. I’m reminded rather of The Mantles and a fair dollop of the heat-haze of Real Estate. With this and the wonderful Prophet Hens out this week and countless other superior pop records over the last month or so, my heart is so glad of so much gorgeous guitar jangle pop of late that I could single-handedly de-pip an orange.

‘You Still’ is another lovely simple piece of melodic, chiming pop in thrall to The Velvet Underground, The Feelies, and again like The Prophet Hens, The Chills' influence is extremely prominent. All beautifully produced, it seems this week we are really spoiling you.
