4.0 out of 5 stars A Grubby Glawegian Delight 16 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD
Paws are a talented Glaswegian trio whose debut album 'Coakfloat'
is saturated with the kind of youthful enthusiasm which very probably
blew frontman Philip Taylor's Dad's garage doors of their hinges before
the band took the finished article into the studio for a final polishing!
Perhaps polished isn't quite the right description for their music and
therein lays much of its appeal. It's a tad grubby and raw in the nicest
possible way. The solid rhythmic foundation and Mr Philip's curiously engaging
nasal vocal snarl imbue these thirteen songs with a gritty immediacy which
would doubtless work very well in a live context. One can easily imagine
the smell of stale beer and Jagermeister-stained students flailing along
in time in some of our Scottish cousin's less salubrious hostelries!

What the band lacks in charm they more than make up for with buckets full
of unbridled energy. Your Nan probably wouldn't like it and that's the point.
Having said this Paws have laid down more than a few good tunes here. They
seem unable to disguise their innate pop leanings despite their brattish
proclivities. For goodness sake they even manage to deliver one good (albeit
somewhat potty-mouthed) ballad of-sorts in the rather splendid 'Get Bent'!

For the the rest it's a pretty-much full-on affair. Standout tracks include :
opening number 'Catherine 1956' which seems to channel more than a little
of Husker Du's finer 80's inventions; 'Bloodline', at just over two minutes,
a rampantly unbridled approximation of brain-crushing punkish mayhem; and
especially 'Miss American Bookworm', as tasty a slice of abrasive rock as
I've heard this year. All-in-all the album wins through with its gleeful
and unfettered disregard for good taste and current conventions. I love it!

A fine first showing. I wish them well with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contagious, But Never Stupid 19 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD
If Cokefloat! is not nominated for next year's Mercury Music Prize I will stare blankly in puzzlement. Then continue to try to plug it. It has given me two weeks of listening enjoyment so far and I feel there's much more to get out of it.

It is a true album of songs that will take you on a sonic journey. Loss of a parent, childhood bullying and family breakdown are not funny things. They are not invented either. It is a disarmingly open debut. It's a true album of songs and will take you on a melodic, grunge light, radio friendly first half to some really tasty thrash in a 4 song climactic course before a comedown with Poor old Christopher Robin that could raise the hair on the back of your neck.

After every few listens I've found a different favourite song. Jellyfish, Bloodline, Catherine 1956.. Until, deciding there's not a bad track and loving most, I realised that it stands as a work of art. And I'm serious about that.

The cover is a self portrait of Jessica Penfold, a friend of the band and comic artist. Why? To help publicise her! A gimmick? I really don't think so after seeing them twice and finding some interviews. Phil has his own cassette tape based record label and seems to have created a Glasgow Underground of like-minded talent.

In the age of manufactured bands, these guys are really real. No airs or graces. The music is real. The passion is real. The songs are lyrically heartbreaking but with not an ounce of self pity. There is honest rage, hard strumming and an uplifting defiance and positive energy in all of the songs. They are a band that literally say "don't f*** with me". And that's as punk as it gets.

If you want an idea of them, find a you tube video of Bloodline or Jellyfish. -The Toad Sessions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad, hopeful, persevering 11 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
Philip Taylor is a motherless lamb. Just look at him - big sad eyes, goofy grin, messy hair, slouchy posture. Listen to his songs - all about adolescent trauma ("Homecoming," "Miss American Bookworm"), the pain of not being right for someone ("Jellyfish," "Tulip"), self-doubt ("Christopher Robin," "Boregasm," "Pony"), loss and bereavement (pretty much every other song on the album). This album should be a sink of despair, yet it burns with passion and even optimism. Listening to it, I just want to give the whole band a hug, but in a "share our strength" sort of way rather than out of pity. They just keep on keeping on, and it's beautiful. The jangly guitar, thrashy drums, crackly bass, and even the distorted vocals are comforting rather than jarring. Whatever pain you're in, it doesn't go away, but you feel like you can bear it after listening to this record. You get the feeling that these guys have experienced the bad things life throws at them - abuse, abandonment, loss - and yet they've "turned their woes into sing-alongs." A beautiful, hopeful noise. Check them out.

5.0 out of 5 stars The cure for a musical dry patch! 31 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's fair to say that I've been in the midst of a musical dry patch lately. I've been on the search of something new and exciting to listen to and the search, I can promise you, has been vast. I stumbled upon Paws by chance when I popped along to a gig with my sister to see We Are Scientists after her friend couldn't make it. Paws blew me away - I was immediately hooked; which is pretty rare to be that excited about a support band!

Cokefloat! is catchy, addictive and with the right amount of ups and downs. The powerful lyrics combined with the perfect execution of the garage punk-rock genre gets the job done. Since buying this album over the weekend I have not stopped listening to it.

Key songs: Bloodline, Catherine 1956, Jellyfish, Homecoming, Poor Old Christopher Robin, Sore Tummy.

I'm really rating this album and I cannot wait for the sophomore follow up as it's sure to be great.
