Limited edition cassette on EDILS. Créme consists of 7 new tracks by UK DIY outfit Dignan Porch. Ltd cassette to mark them going on European tour its filled with noisy lo-fi, home recordings of sun-filled pop songs. Casio keyboards and acoustic guitars. Think Pixies in a meeting with Black Moth Super Rainbow, recorded straight on to tape.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 24 April 2015
If there’s such a thing as being post-Captured Tracks then Dignan Porch are it. They sound as if they have been heavily influenced by the re-issues that label has brought to the worth (particularly anything from New Zealand and Cleaners From Venus as well as modern day movers such as Alex Calder).
Opener ‘Split Boxes’ has a nice hazy lo-fi sound to it before being overtaken by a heap of strangulated guitars. ‘Alas’ which is a Slush Guts cover (I’ll have to google ‘em) starts with the standard ‘Be My Baby’ drum beat before opening up into a widescreen lo-fi Triffids-ish pop tune. I prefer them when they set the guitars to trebly and jangly rather than distorted therefore the instrumental ‘GAO’ is a favourite but generally they do well to make me happy by referencing bands I like from the past such as The Clean on ‘Some Warnings’ and The Chills on the delightfully breezy ‘Yards Again’.
The latter exemplifies my only quibble which is that they could simplify their songs further - the chorus doesn’t improve the track any but if they continue to take leaves out of the New Zealand economical pop book they could achieve true greatness. Enjoyed this.
