Hot on the heels of their excellent 'Pink Fur' LP, Post War Glamour Girls have a single out on Too Pure this week. On side A of this green disc is 'Gustave' which sees boy singer doing his Nick Cave-meets-Frank Black thing along to a cool bassline and some shimmery guitar touches, while girl singer pipes up in the chorus with some stoical Sarah Nixey-ish crooning, and then they do a nice little call and response build-up into a climactic post-rock-out.
Side B's got 'Lolong', a wonky slow-paced dub-punk number with ranty vocals, delay-drenched guitar and epic '80s synth touches. It's quite awkward and sparse but strangely catchy...it reminds me of The Police and The Jesus Lizard at the same time but really doesn't sound like either. Interesting stuff, neither of the songs have the kind of killer pop hooks that are all over the album, relying more on tension and theatrics instead.
