7/10 Clinton Staff review, 21 January 2015
I'm not in the ideal physical (nor mental to be honest) place for reviewing music. A could draughty warehouse with a computer dating from sometime in the late '90's. The least ideal place in fact to pick at Domino's latest signing  Jib Kidder. That name won't mean much to you but this US based multi instrumentalist comes up with an unusual sound that I'm finding hard to describe other than to say that it comes somewhere from the same ballpark as your Panda Bear/Animal Collective axis.    Opener 'Remove a Tooth' (ha! coincidentally my girlfriends just had a tooth yanked out today) is a krauty piece of electronica with heavily vocodored vocals. It goes on seemingly forever, the vocals gliding robotically over the never changing synth scape.  Perkier is 'In Between' which is a really excellent piece of sunshine pop with some severe bhangra influenced melodies. The vocal has a strange tick to it, as if the vocalist is trying to swallow an anvil whilst completeing the vocal take. 'Appetites' too is an enjoyable slab of oddball pop. Kind of like Brian Wilson turned upside down and told to sing 'Pet Sounds' without using his mouth.   At times I'm reminded of Grandaddy, it has that slacker laid back charm. Nothing rushes out of the speakers at you but its kinda nice its there.  'World of Machines' provides some much needed variations with its cut up samples somewhere between Adventures in Stereo and J Dilla. Wierd 'n' wobbly lop sided pop. 'Dozens' has the shades of Lindsay Buckingham as promised by the press release but its a Lindsay Buckingham trapped in an oil filter. Overall I enjoyed that.
