Album Review

Reviewed 2013-11-07 
Fucking incredible Welsh noise pop-cum-twee with hardcore, shoegaze, PacNW influences via Slumberland. Fem lead vox- often indecipherable, dual guitars, slamming rhythm section, absolutely perfect balance of melodies and noise. Fuzzed out, jangly, catchy, head-slamming; do-do-do's, shouts, dreamy vox in abundance right next to one another. Intense, essential, one of the year's best.

RIYL: Veronica Falls, Sonic Youth, early/mid MBV, Wax Idols, Mika Miko, Dinosaur Jr., riot grrrl

*1 (2:38) Grooving, shimmering, sugary pop dripped in noise
***2 (2:46) Insanely catchy, blissful twee pop intermingles with noisy breakdowns. Loud, pounding ending. What a fucking song
*3 (3:25) Slower, groovy, 90s fuzz track pounds along under high, breathy vox
*4 (2:33) Noisy open into SY discordant guits, hooks, pounds, F/M vox
5 (2:05) FCC FUCK Romping; floating, dreamy vox over bashing drums
**6 (2:44) One guitar jangles, one makes noise; screamed, passionate F vox alternate w/ dream poppy M/F ones. Love/violence lyrics
7 (2:49) Slow noisy intro; blistering catchy noise-twee that just explodes
8 (4:02) Slower, pummelling with quiet sections; feedback washes, dreamy vox
9 (3:20) FCC FUCK Reverbed guitar, amped up, punky, loud drums, noisy outro
10 (2:12) FCC FUCK Quiet; noisy backdrop, plucked guitars, slow, dreamy first 60%, then soars, settles down again; nice closer. Ends 10s early
