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 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.
