7/10 Clinton Staff review, 14 February 2017

No sniggering at the back. Deep Throat Choir are a collective of female singers and musicians based around Landshapes member Luisa Gerstein and formed with an aim to bring music back to the basic elements of voices and percussion. Although there are elements of Gaggle and to a lesser extent Polyphonic Spree in what they do, Deep Throat Choir are a proposition all their own. They are simply invented for the summer festival. Their joyous interpretations are just perfect for that mid afternoon feel good set. Old people, children and dogs will love them.

On record it’s also initially impressive  - the sheer breath of harmony and stacked vocals gives a much needed human warmth that in these of computer generated days strips things back to how music can effect the soul by the sheer force of the voice. Original compositions are mixed with songs by the likes of Amy Winehouse (‘In My Bed’), Little Dragon (‘Ritual Union’), Wildbirds & Peacedrums (‘The Wave’), Electrelane (‘In Berlin’), Dark, Dark, Dark (‘Daydreaming’), Sylvan Esso (‘Hey Mami’) and Donnie & Joe Emerson (‘Baby’) among others and the songs feel like soulful, gospel-ish and…yes a bit safe in comparison to some of the daring vocal gymnastics they attempt. It’s also incredibly samey after awhile, perhaps this won’t matter in short festival set but on record you sort to have to take it in smaller doses and by the time I get to Donnie & Joe Emerson’s ‘Baby’ I never want to hear another choir in my life.
