Le Reno Amps
So For Your Thrills... (Pet Piranha Records)
A strange wee record this one. While Le Reno Amps plough a distinctly Scottish folk field, this Glasgow lot can nevertheless step into American alt.country when the mood sees fit. The excellent ‘How You Did Me Wrong’ and ‘Radio’ would give Ryan Adams a run for his money given a Whiskey(town) soaked production. But for the most part the album holds a whimsical quality sure to appeal to lovers of fey indie types (that’s you Belle and Sebastian fans). It might prove a little too quirky for those who like their country bruised and battered but for those willing to take a chance there’s some real treats in store.
