The front cover of this new Piskie Sits record is great, a big crowd of Japanese movie monsters battling it out as a crowd of people flees into the foreground. On the disc, “the British Pavement” (copyright our Phil, circa just now) lay down 10 tracks of slightly shambolic quirk-pop as if it was still 1997. Perhaps in their minds it still is. Lord knows I wish it was.
Phil is right of course, the resemblance to Malkmus’s crew is impossible to ignore much of the time, but this lot do have a distinctively British take on that affable slacker pop style, like the results of an impromptu songwriting session between Archers of Loaf and Half Man Half Biscuit. There’s nothing on this album which will sound new to you, but if you like indie rock that sounds like it was made in the mid-‘90s then it’s a totally charming collection full of hooks and personality, and a bargain price too.
