- Rain Ruins Revolution by Let's Wrestle
8/10 Mike Staff review, 25 February 2014
I struggled with the new Lets Wrestle album when it came around on my review pile last time round. There's no denying that they've sharpened up their chops but their bouncy London indie-psych-pop did start to jar over the course of the album.
Weirdly, though, in this smaller dose I'm actually enjoying them very much. 'Rain Ruins Revolution' is a kind of anti-anthem about the riots and looting that ended up getting rained off the other summer. It's jangly and fairly fast paced and a bit Kinksy and it's got big harmonies and a dead catchy chorus...yes, it's quite agreeable. I have this same problem with Gruff Rhys, I was ambivalent about his last album but then it turned out to be full of better-than-decent singles.
The B side sounds kind of like the Kinks too...or more like Blur when they're trying to sound like the Kinks, which is to say it's really nice, downbeat psych pop. I wasn't expecting the band to head in this more serious direction but I have to admit I'm warming to it.
