- Everything Infinite by Wunder Wunder
I remember this lot from the lovely ‘Coastline’ single which, if I were in charge of Radio 1, would pump out of wireless sets on an hourly basis if the sun was shining. Lets see how they do over a full length shall we?
Well, its busy to say the least - full of beans in fact. It chucks the kitchen sink in with fizzing synths, layered vocals and on opener 'Everything Infinite' one of those snaky Eastern melodies people do. Its the kind of puppy-ish excitable pop the record execs hoped MGMT might have made. I’ve discussed the Phoenix-pop of ‘Coastline’ enough already so I’m onto ‘Hail The Madman’ which is.....pretty terrible actually. A quelshy pop song lacking in anything even approaching a melody and far too tween pop for these old ears. Better is ‘Midnight Hours’ which has a kind of Fleetwood Mac/10CC/Washed Out vibe with harmonies stacked all over the place. I like this a lot better; yes its chart aiming, yes its watering down Washed Out even more than they’ve watered themselves down but its nice on my soft velvet ears. Its unshameably a pop album, make no bones about it, its fluff but there are some nice melodies.
As a sum up -its kind of early MGMT meets Washed Out meets One Direction if you are ok with that.
