Odeon Beat Club

Odeon Beat Club (Beat Club Recordings)


This has been a long time coming. The List has sat quietly, collecting up demos and singles in a tidy pile until this unassuming quartet finally got a long player out. Thankfully this is worth the wait: a dozen brittle tunes that alternately rattle with passion or invoke a gentle, melancholic sepia tone. While they don’t sound like either, they invoke the spirit of The Delagdos and The Wedding Present at points: overwrought and emotionally exhausting. But there is a crispness about their music which underpins their big ol’ brain and even bigger heart. This is extraordinary stuff. Odeon Beat Club will break your heart given half the chance.
