7/10 Clinton Staff review, 21 May 2014
By gum that Dum Dum Girls lass has been busy. Firstly with her own album earlier this year, then guesting on the great Lifers 7" this week and finally appearing as one half of this supergroup with a lad from Crocodiles (who, I've just found out, is hubby).
From the off its 90's style shoegaze pop with lots of one note basslines and sub Spacemen 3 melodies, poppified slighty for the kind of mass appeal the likes of Curve once enjoyed. Opener Initiate Me is a good enough start, coming across like a little more electronica obsessed Savages.The music is a pummeling electronic motorik groove, swathed in reverb for maximum 90's murk. 'Something That Feels Bad is Something That Feels Good' is a case in point; occuping, if there were one, the exact mid point between Jesus and Mary Chain and School of Seven Bells. I was snagged towards the LP earlier today by 'Johnny Jupiter' which reminded me of a rather more scrubbed Broadcast, yet wierdly indistinct compared to their crystal clear delivery. They are happy it seems to float these songs along in this sea of washed out reverb. On this track particular I'm reminded of The Horrors' Faris Baldwin's Cats Eyes side project.
Not a bad effort then, particularly appealing to fans of shoegaze/dream-pop who don't mind their music a little scrubbed, the krauty grooves are disrupted on 'Love Incognito' which sounds like the kind of pop smash that eluded the chill-wave bunch.
