Lo fi New Zealand influenced pop, it’s here, it’s there, it’s everywhere. This is a neat album of wiry, held-together-with-bits-of-string slacker pop. Opener ‘Argyle Enthusiast’ sets the scene sounding like Dinosaur Jr playing The Jam's ‘That’s Entertainment’ with their fingers glued together. Its shambling, shambolic and awfully good fun.
There are tonnes of songs, 18 in total, so if you don’t like one, there’ll be another one along in a minute. I’d hazard a guess, though, that fans of shambling lo-fi rock will find much to enjoy here from ‘For This Structure’ which sounds almost exactly like The Clean to the early Go Betweens strum of ‘The Russian’ to the Canannes ish ‘Underemployed’ to the kind of rattling off kilter pop punk Sebadoh specialised in (‘Forever Designing My Stationery’) the album is full to the brim with unpretentious lo-fi rock. But mostly it sounds like The Clean. No bad thing.
