9/10 Clinton Staff review, 27 February 2014
This lot first came to my attention back in ‘13 with a great single on Marshall Teller which almost....almost made me smile. This debut 6 track album again has my mouth on its way into a general upward pattern.
Its not the sort of thing that’s going to leap out at you, I don’t know what their name is all about and the sleeve doesn’t give anything away but the music....the music. Give it a try! I hope you won’t be disappointed.
Ok first up I’m going to say it and its been said a million times before in recent months but......Tame Impala. Ok? Lets start there. Opener ‘Away For Now’ is like a spooked ethereal take on the Aussie psychsters with lots of wierd drones and pulses ebbing through the mix. ‘Hunter’ is more ...I guess...conventional. reminds me a little of parts of the Kevin Parker-assisted Melody Echo’s Chamber album from last year. Weird drifting 60’s referencing psych pop at its best, I can’t decide whether the fizzes and distortion on ‘Birds’ are intentional or the result of a ropey pressing but they add a further layer of murk to the recording which is already heavily effected by various reverbs and tape delays culminating on a satisfying shadowy brew.
Closer ‘Suburban Lights’ is a blast. Firing along on pulsing bass and Neu like drums it builds in intensity until halfway through it powers into an amazing downwards chord pattern. Its like a companion piece to Deerhunter’s ‘Spring Hall Convert’. As good as that. Another great addition to the current wave of dreamy psych bands and highly recommended.
