Gloriously messy pop rock from Edinburgh scuzz merchants
Smoother than they once were, Edinburgh’s premier lo-fi power-popsters nervertheless come on like some unreconstructed missing link between Swell Maps and Pavement, their urgently scuzzed-up melodies bouncing along with an unashamed fondness for squiggly-wiggly guitar lines pumped along by a drummer who thwacks his kit around the room like a post-modern Keith Moon who can’t find the swimming pool.
With such a pot pourri of conflicting sounds slugging it out over a selection of everyday art school laments, this gloriously messy melange of oddball nonsense is the aural equivalent of falling down a spiral staircase, grinning as you go.
