Never mind the Spice Girls, here's girl power. All-female Electrelane make music without overt political messages (and therefore free of glib slogans) but with more elliptical lyrics, sung in a number of languages. Many of the tracks have an urgency about them, the drumming being quite reminiscent of Joy Division's uptempo moments. The vague air of paranoia is diluted by breezy vocals and swirling organ, not altogether unrelated to Stereolab. The overall feel is more steely, less whimsical than Stereolab, and the better for it.

Something new between the sun and the sea 30 July 2007
By Connery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well, this is something new. I can't remember how exactly I came across this album, but it was here on Amazon, perhapse in a recommendations box several months ago. I like Indie rock, always searching for new horizons in the genre. And this was truly a find. Many months ago I'd never heard of the foursome called Electrelane from England, and I have yet to meet another person who has. But that's a beauty of underground bands such as this, they're untouched. Give them time though, and I honestly believe that this quartet of lasses will soon be recognized more thoroughly.

So I heard this album right here on Amazon, and immediately knew that I must have this album. I wanted a much closer look. It took me forever to finally track it down though. When I did, I couldn't wait to get home to my CD player and finally hear the album that had been playing around in my head for months, in entirety. Since a couple of weeks ago I have seldom stopped listening to it. It keeps playing on in your head, but not in an annoying way. You simply have to come back to it. It's more than just Indie music, its really it's own kind. Tough to describe because I've never heard anything like it before. It combines some generic traits of Indie with a little bit of electronica, and then throws them a lot groove! And the drum beats are so deliciously high school garagey sounding, the whole musical concept is just sort of innocent and that is the most attractive factor about it. It's new and innocent.

Again, the songs themselves are a bit hard to describe because there is nothing to compare them to. My favorites are "The Greater Times", which maintains a consistant beat. It is upbeat and escalates. "To the East" maintains the same disposition. "Tram 21" is totally instrumental, with a really nice groovy organ that I think you can recognize in the sample. Like the others, it is consistant. A good driving song. "At Sea" is sort of slow and haunting, but then of course Electrelane posesses that haunted sort of sound. This could have been a title track, and I guess because of the album cover, it sort of is in my mind. "Saturday" is almost instrumental, entertaining a long, voiceless intro that's very nice and cool. "Cut and Run" is possibly the best song on here. The instrumental arrangement is superb, introducing a ukulele to this song which is pure genius as it seems to gel with Electrelane's style completely. I listen to this one more than the others, and its the best new song I've heard in a while.

Again, maybe due to the exquisite packaging of this CD, I tend to think of the sea every time I hear it. A completely overcast background, with furious winds howling and no land in sight. The CD itself is very consistant from song to song. I cannot say exactly how this album stacks up to the other few Electrelane albums out there. I've checked a few out with what the samples have to offer, and with what you can tell from them I think this album is clearly the best. It is the only one that really maintains a definite personality. It has enormous character, and it sounds so new and fresh. It comes with a poster in the sleeve, that is a very nice piece of artwork, a watercolor I think that looks very 20s. A cool touch, and it also has the lyrics of each song on the back.

From the music, right on down to the packaging (which is the best I have ever seen in an album, very modern) and total appearance of the thing, this is a finely composed Item. I mean very well designed in entirety. As they say in the previous reviews, there is some really good new stuff comming out this year, and most of it is unheard of. Well this album from Electrelane takes the cake. It is the best one of '07 I have been lucky enough to hear. I strongly encourage you to try it out. It will be well worth your time.

More of the same, not that that's a bad thing 27 May 2007
By John L Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A consistent album, their fourth in the studio. Less angular than "Axes." Calmer than parts of "The Power Out." Less daring than the B-sides collection. The four young women from Brighton show as their title promises a steady direction forward on their voyage across interlaced keyboards, guitars, bass, and drums, all polished to a piston-sharp sheen.

The Too Pure label is appropriate, as this reminds me of vintage Stereolab-- and perhaps the mid-90s band Moonshake in parts. The four musicians, backed by Verity Susman's smooth controlled vocals, continue to mix a motorik beat in the livelier passages with softer-tinged tunes that saunter. I wish far more of the former were included, as I favor the faster songs, but this album does show welcome maturity in lessening the number of yelps and yodels that tended to become a stylistic tic on earlier recordings.

No false turns here. Each song avoids predictability, but the willful attempt on earlier records to be quirky has vanished. The craftsmanship with which this CD has been assembled shows in its confident poise and determined focus. It'll grow on me, I predict, and for accompanying you in the car or on a trip, it can be perfect music matching movement to contemplation to action.

Best album to date, more songs with lyrics than other albums 22 Mar. 2008
By David Munns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Electrelane knows how to rock it. To the moon. Maybe beyond.

Catchy, cool and well mixed, this album is the first one with a start-to-finish track listing that is balanced, cohesive and diverse.

I loved that "No Shouts No Calls" also experimented with female duets. "Cut and Run" was the best song on the album. It showed that they not only know how to use synthesizers, drum machines and keyboards, but they can also write fantastic lyrics.

Other queercore bands tend to have a lead vocalist, whereas Electrelane uses the girls' voices to play off one another other. Speaking of, this band does queercore right: they have yet to bemoan menstruation. It's nice to see some girls fronting one of the most respected bands in electrorock's male-dominated genre.

Buy this album if you like any of their others, or if you're wanting to hear Electrelane for the first time. Heck, if for no other reason, buy this album so the band can afford better equipment to produce the next one.

Is sad they had to go ... 17 Nov. 2009
By BERNARDO SANCHEZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Electrelane was an all girl band from England altough not in the same vein as Hole or The Runaways. They had a fresh sound I haven't heard in years.

Their sound was fresh new, and IMO given the time they could have been very good.

I think No Shout No Calls was their peak as both band and as artists,

I don't understand how come they studios passed in order to favor bands such as The Artic Monkeys and The Libertines, perhaps the old myth that says that "Girls can't rock" is still prevalent in the studios.

Too bad these girls rocked better than most of today alternative bands, Mia Clarke imo is the best guitarist of this decade and hopefully like Joy Division these girls will be recognized in the future.

The disc is a must for any indie/altie collector, or for people looking for a new kind of sound. Great audio and a nice poster is include within.

Bernardo.
my favorite band of the 00's!! 29 May 2014
By Peter Choyce - Published on Amazon.com

THIS is one of 4 GREAT CDs by Electrelane! Every one as good as the other. This seems to be their last, or latest- i don't know- i only know that i have all 4 and I listen to them over and over again. Set in the way back of overlaid instrumental driving forward action is a rare schreatchy kind of female vocal and the band is TIGHT, man very tight. what can i say? look at their Videos on UTUBE. This one has TOO THE EAST, IN berlin, Between the wolf and the dog and CUt and run- listen to those and then pick this up! CHEAP!!
