8/10 Robin Staff review, 14 March 2018

Every Wharf Cat release day is a miniature Christmas unto itself. This week they’re throwing down a gauntlet and/or record by Bichkraft, a chirpy racket-making collective from Ukraine who use tinges of noise-adjacent genres to ultimately make pretty lovely pop shred. With a touch of production done by Merchandise’s Carson Cox, you can expect small link-ups of feedback and discordance in the name of something more appropriate for the ear.

It’s kinda welcome, this lite approach: by abstracting tidbits of post-punk and noise rock, Bichkraft create a record bristling but not overflowing with energy. These songs sound proudly nervous, their whimsical basslines floundering but never flinching, the chords clashing and twanging their way to semi-accidental hooks -- “Yonder” is endlessly catchy without doing anything all that particular to be that way. Blink and you’ll miss that handclap, though.

This one’s likely to appeal to a whole buncha light industry punks: if you like a drum machine thumping away at your mundane ears and a flatlining post-punk intensity that sounds both thrilling and no frills, this one’s for you. Tinges of brilliance.
