Robert Sotelo returns to Upset The Rhythm with another set of charmingly idiosyncratic ballads. Sotelo has always had a knack for combining the intimacy of your classic singer-songwriter fare with the angular quirk of post-punk - think a plugged-in Richard Dawson, John Maus with the effects switched off, or perhaps a more erstwhile King Krule. Infinite Sprawling chronicles changes in Sotelo's life - a move from London to Glasgow, a final trip to visit his mother in Argentina - with affecting sensitivity. This one has the potential to be a cult hit, so maybe cop Infinite Sprawling early in order to claim bragging rights later on.

7/10 Will 10 September 2019

'Infinite Sprawling' is a good description of what I imagine psych slacker Robert Sotelo does for most of the day. Despite this, he's managed to get an album out, a ten song ode to classic modern psych. There are big choruses, Kevin Parker-style falsetto, and hints of classic 60s and 70s psychedelia. Robert Soleto is the alias of Andrew Doig and quite why he felt the need to change his name I don't know. I love his original name. Maybe I'll use it from now on. 

So Doigy's new album is really nice, full of whimsy and gentle wistfulness. It's got a technicolour, saccharine feel to it but not in an overpowering way. The album is chockablock with weird little bits like the frogs ribbiting on 'Infinite Sprawling' and a great water droplet sound on 'Roof'. Doigle's album reminds me of Supergrass when they got a little bit weirder like on 'Faraway' and 'Sun Hits The Sky'. 

Neo-psychedelica has been given a makeover by the Doigmeister and it sounds all the better for it.
