Nap Eyes’ previous release Whine of the Mystics was quite a brooding melancholic affair, with their follow up Thought Rock Fish Scale they have opened the windows a bit, and there is an air of romanticism to their brand of indie pop. Recorded straight to a 4-track in single takes - no overdubs to be found here, there is a pleasant sense of emergency to it.  For fans of Lou Reed, The Clean, The Go-Betweens, Bedhead. Comes with download code.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 03 February 2016
My mum always told me not to tell tales but Nap Eyes singer Nigel Chapman ignores that advice and spends an album regaling stories. This is is a very different beast from Nap Eyes previous album was a raggle tangle blend of the Clean, the Modern Lovers  and the Velvet Underground but here  they concentrate on one particular aspect, an aspect which wears sunglasses. An aspect called Sir Lou Reed.   Rather than going hither, thither the album tends to stay on one kind of plane - a sparse brand of indie rock which gives plenty of space for Chapman to chat to us. Self assessment time: if I have one flaw (bigger than the others) as a reviewer I tend to ignore lyrics. So really at this point I should be repeating some of Chapman’s clever couplets but to be honest I’m not really listening to them. Instead I’m listening to the music which drifts slowly. It sounds like a sedate Modern Lovers, a Wave Pictures with only half the amount of solo-ing or on ‘Mixer’ early Belle and Sebastien with a man's man on vocals. ‘Lion In Chains’ meanwhile IS Lou Reed.   It’s a nice listen  - after half of it someone in the office pipes up “he does go on”. And yes he does. He talks a lot. But that's the point I think.
