- Zoloto by Brown Brogues
8/10 Mike Staff review, 15 April 2014
That scuzzy garage rock duo from the other side of the Pennines, Brown Brogues, are back with a new 10" EP, initial copies of which come with a bonus copy of their six-song debut 7" as an added RSD-related treat. The 10" has all the hallmarks that made their previous releases winners. Deceptively well crafted little grunge pop numbers disguised in sloppy lo-fi delivery.
Immediate stand-outs here are opener 'Shit in your Eye' and closer 'A Man'. The former is a glammy stomp with a chugging riff that's like a filthy western take on Japanese child star one-hit wonders Finger 5's 'Koinodaiaru 6700' and some nicely placed backing vocals; the latter a rare but well-executed slowie with a jangly guitar and wistful falsetto vocals and a tambourine and loads of reverb.
The stuff on the 7" is more stripped back and kind of on a sludge-punk tip without so much of the '60s pop influence. Overall it's a patchier package than their excellent 'Triflin'' LP but there's still enough mucky little gems hidden on here to maintain my interest.
