In response to the over-intellectualized, exclusive world of high art, singer/guitarist David Woodruff dropped out of art school to form The Delicious. With accessibility and sincerity as its goals, the Delicious craft strangely accessible indie-art-pop in their own complex, honest, light-hearted, and well-equipped fashion. Their disjointed pop sensibility combined with high-minded, jazz-degree-carrying musicianship results in an album that is complex and mathematical, yet always tasteful, unpretentious, and addictive.

8/10 Mike Staff review, 24 July 2014

The sticker on the front of this says breathlessly, "complex, sincere, light-hearted and freakishly disjointed blend of experi-indie-art-pop...with elegantly constructed, cerebral power-pop anthems". Sounds promising! Let's have a listen...

This is indeed quite clever, fast-paced indie pop with ideas pinging around all over the place, bolstered by a rumbustuous Clap Your Hands Say Yeah-ish enthusiasm and some nice wonky stop-start touches that bring to mind the likes of Menomena or the Notwist, while the restlessly twisting melodicism is reminiscent of Of Montreal in their prime around the 'Sunlandic Twins' era.
The five-song EP feels like it's over in a flash but it's strangely exhausting, a non-stop parade of colourful tones and melodies, and it's nice to get a little breather in the middle in the shape of downbeat chugger 'Cryptozoological Allstars', which has a nice Pinbacky plod to it. Imaginative and vibrant indie-pop business, basically, not bad at all.
