King Post Kitsch - The Party’s Over

(Song, by Toad)

To the regal ranks of Scots pop innovators King Biscuit Time and King Creosote, let us welcome Glasgow-via-London psychedelic rock tsar King Post Kitsch – alias sound engineer Charlie Ward.

Ward kicks off his debut album in style with a motley triple-header of kaleidoscopic choral-grunge (‘Portland Street Pt 2), incandescent garage scuzz (‘Don’t You Touch My Fucking Honeytone’) and evocative indie-folk (‘Fante’s Last Stand’).

The Party’s Over is variegated yet cohesive; dreamy yet gripping – from the woozy rock’n’roll of ‘The Werewolf Hop’ to the acoustic sleigh-bell lilt of ‘The New Gang’ which pits King Post Kitsch against an upbeat Bon Iver, and wins.
