St Deluxe - St Deluxe

Fuzzed-out Glaswegians St Deluxe sound like they’ve set out to please themselves firstly on their debut, and if other folks dig it too: bonus. They’ve already picked up a few influential fans along the way in ex-Spacemen 3 dude Peter Kember, Teenage Fanclub and Alan McGee, who called them ‘a Scottish Nirvana for the 21st century’, in his trademark understated way.
And you’ll like them too, at least if you enjoy your riffs big, twisted and oozing with frankly silly amounts of fuzz Dinosaur Jr style, your vocals slack ala Stephen Malkmus and your soundscapes warm, noisy and glowing, like My Bloody Valentine with controls set for the heart of the sun.
