- Don’t Look At Me by Keel Her
1 review. Write a review for us »
Apparently after recording something like a million songs, Keel Her (aka Rose Keeler-Schaffler) has now started releasing some of them and with a new album in the pipeline, its a good time for her summery, lo-fi pop to think about taking over the space vacated when Best Coast went off the boil.
Lead track ‘Don’t Look at Me’ is immediately infectious, with fuzzing guitars and keyboards battling away over the top of a drum machine. One part Vivian Girls, one part Black Tambourine, one part Tallulah Gosh, its an anorak pleasing slice of C86 pop that could have easily be unearthed from the Corrupt Postman tape or some other such late 80's/early 90’s collection.
Its nice, though after a few minutes I’d forgotten it was on. It might have been better off a bit shorter. ‘Pussywhipped’ on the flip does a similar thing in a less catchy manner, a little darker, hints of New Order in the bassier grooves. I’m slightly concerned about the heavy reverb on the vocals, its makes them very indistinct and as a result I’m just not connecting with the lyrics. I’m sure its all part of the plan but it does sound like her mouth has been filled with souffle.
