Wu Lyf (pronounced "woo life") hail from Manchester and are absolutely nothing like you'd expect from that scant information alone. The band drench their sound in floods of reverb and employ the kind of dramatic songwriting that helped put Arcade Fire where they are today, albeit far less theatrical. Singer Ellery James Roberts possess an urgent rasp of a voice and spits out his occasionally inaudible lyrics in such a manner that could divide opinion and lose Wu Lyf as many fans as it could earn them. This is why I adore this record: it genuinely sounds like the band are trying something interesting and new. It's sometimes sparse, sometimes chaotic; both upbeat and mellow. There's been some excellent records released in 2011 and this original and inventive offering from Wu Lyf is one of the best.

Just a quick word about this version of Wu Lyf's 'Go Tell Fire To The Mountain'; it is EXACTLY THE SAME as the other version (white background, colour picture in the centre) released last year. It contains all ten tracks (despite Amazon - at time of writing - only listing the first six) with the only difference being the packaging: instead of a cardboard book-style case (with a slightly annoying 'spine' that could bend and damage easily, especially in the post) this version offers a fold out digipack affair with an arguably cooler photo on the front. Aesthetics aside, there is NO DIFFERENCE WHATSOEVER. Just to clarify!

I heard this band being played endlessly by the regulars in a Spit and Sawdust Real Ale pub. Soundhound is a great invention!

Just finally got round to buying the CD, it not being the easiest thing to find in Independents.

Musically they remind me of late Factory - early Madchester. I am thinking of bands that hung around the fringes like the Stockholm Monsters and Paris Angels, even down to the very dodgy vocals and pretty rough production. However putting them in a posh studio and getting him to sing properly would I think defeat the object. Wonderful church style Organ underpins tribal rythymns and some very jangly Madchester guitars, all very pleasing on the ears. The vocals will divide opinion and probably limit their commercial potential. Even with the lyric sheet in front of me I cant work out what he is singing! Most of the songs have great choruses too but comprehension isn't aided by deliberately obscure song structures and a tribal chant like delivery which frankly is pretty close to the style of Black Metal vocals!

Incidentally lyrically it is very good rather rebellious in tone, very intense, definitely some sort of call to arms.

At the moment I cant stop listening to it. You could be very cynical about the almost FGTH style marketing Schtick but its the intentional anti-commerciality of the vocals coupled with what are basically very strong indie garage pop songs that convinces me they are the genuine article. In the context of all that I also don't think there's a duff track on it, and Concrete Gold and Dirt are really pretty special.

On the back on reading the hype and reviews and then listening to the album which is good but dosent grab you immeadiately more of a grower i have just watched WU LYF live at the Kazimier club Liverpool and was blown away by this vey exicting young band. Fantastic gig played in a superb underground venue with a packed assembley of mosh pit devotee's in full surging and crowd surfing frenzy and then like myself a back of room of 30-40 year old something music fans enjoying a WU LYF baptism for the first time.
The album is good but it dosent do anywhere near enough justice to just how good this band is live.
By all means buy the album but if you ever get a chance to see this band live then dont even hesistate for one second. The vocals of a 20 year young lad by the name of Ellery Roberts will astound you with its depth and maturity and gravelled tom waite'esk power and emmotion.Could not believe a voice like that could come from such a young skinny white lad.
A must see band now whilst the ticket costs are low.

First heard the track 'Dirt" on Radio 1, played by my least favourite dj, who nevertheless usually picks pretty good records of the week! I love this album, beautiful soaring melancholic sounds, definitely my album of the year, have played it many times and it still sounds as fresh as when it came out the box....can't understand a word they're saying but it still sounds epic!

I have come to this album without really knowing much of the 'hype' that have surrounded this band. I listened to an Mp3 of 'Heavy Pop' on pitchfork and having read their review bought the record (as I often do.)

I have been belting this in my car for about a week now and I like it. It sounds very tribal. The drums in particular sound absolutely amazing and along with the swirling, crescendo guitar swoops and soars, the record is an exciting thing to listen to.

What people have issue with it seems is the vocals. It seems everytime someone comes along with a slightly different vocal style (Joanna Newsom, Wild Beasts, Tune Yards) people kick off about it. For me they are fine. Variety is the spice of life after all. Yeh you can't practically make out anything the guy says, but so what? All I know is, his tone, the epic sweep of the music, it makes it clear something big is happening. It sounds anthemic even though you can't really sing along to the grunts and growls which is something in itself.

For me the album starts very strongly (L Y F, Cave Song, Summas Bliss, We Bros, Spitting Blood) and does lose some of its urgency towards the end (except for the great 'Heavy pop') and I think this has something to do with the one criticism I would have, which has been mentioned before on here, and that is the lack of diversity of the record. But, this is a debut record and perhaps that will come with time.

Overall this is a record I think that will keep me interested for a long time and I am looking forward to catching them live to see how these songs sound. I will probably try and read the lyric sheet by then as well!
