6/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 January 2016

Ah Radiohead. If it weren’t for them then maybe no-one would whine over skittering electronics.

The opening ‘The World Was My Oyster’ takes that whinge-tronica blueprint and runs with it - veering a little bit close to Foals territory for me. More interesting are the beats of ‘Bent Pyramid’ (surely a lost track from ‘Kid A’). The instrumentation is loose and jazzy with some guitars skirling across the programmed beats. The vocals here are more discordant and possibly better for it  - the vocals remind me of whoever said “the better someone can sing, the less I believe them”  - they are perfectly characterless. I’ve always thought it unfair when reviewers pick on vocalists  - there’s nothing wrong with the voice here but it doesn’t transcend or inspire. However, and here’s the rub, Thom Yorke doesn’t transcend or inspire me either so I’m probably the wrong person to offer an opinion.

If you like Radiohead then this is a well produced version of their sound, I like ‘I Am In ‘ with it’s atmospheres interrupted by odd percussion creating an air of unease around the string based melodies. Might also appeal to fans of James Blake and the Notwist. It sounds at times like a lost of the post rock-tronica that emerges around 2005 (I’m thinking the Album Leaf and pals).

Where are our Radiohead fans when I need em?
