~review by Mick Mercer
I loved the instant rush of warm guitar
and sudden pauses, which had them down as flamenco rebels, but it goes
badly awry after ‘Traces’ because when they’re slow they’re listless and
dull. ‘Medicine’ sees them being so sensitive they’re Big Gurls, and while
the choppier approach and inventive percussion in‘Desiree’ gave it
all a spruce feel, and they are genuinely unusual, it’s still very mild
rock, and I can’t see who that appeals to, or why.
