8/10 Clinton Staff review, 30 May 2014
I'm glad I picked this up as I’m quite enjoying it. They are a trio playing a kind of murky form of left field rock that has traces of grunce and 90’s slacker rock lurking about but if you are wanting a catch all comparison then is Warpaint will be what you are after. Opener ‘Lands of Gold and Green' is a twisty complex composition with nods towards The Breeders and especially Josephine Wiggs solo project Honey Tongue. More lo fi is ‘No Wedding’ which kind of sounds like it was played live and recorded in the next room, the recording quality halting its progress somewhat. On the flip is a more direct slice of complex-a-rock, nods to early Hole perhaps but much more navel gazing and nothing that could be described as rock as such. This is underlined on closer ‘Median/Mode’ which drifts along prettily a little like Mogwai’s ‘Tracy’ until a churning riff and vocal come into play.
