6/10 Clinton Staff review, 03 September 2015

Not the best name for any band that want to be taken half way seriously but these idiots are anything but as they pilfer sounds from all over the place to put in a big sonic stew.

They like their delay pedals and this is exemplified best on opener 'Ambient Rab' where bright and sunny guitars are delayed until they are thoroughly sun dappled. Both 'Kenny Dub Headband' use elements of iItalo- house pianos and dubby bass. Whether this makes them sound dated or ahead of their time I'm not sure but the sound is very clean and clinical and computer generated. This doesn't stop there being moments of pure enjoyment though. 'Another Bird' is a stretched out dubby wonderland with a lovely rubbery bass line and borderline questionable Vini Reilly-esque guitar trills.

The album has been constructed out of alternate versions, mixes and lost things and there's the odd thing that should have stayed in the can such as the Stevie Nicks sample on 'Going Down' (too familiar). It will appeal to fans of stuff like Various Artists, Lemon Jelly and inquisitive Todd Terje listeners.
