"The French trio have fully realised a vision that marries tuneful to atonal, old to new, and conventional songwriting with bold invention." - NME

3.0 out of 5 stars Intoxicating LP from London-based Parisians 13 July 2011
By Micky67
Format:Audio CD
I'm trying to work out if 'Ginkgo Biloba', the lead single fromLondon via Paris troupe Underground Railroad, is a blatant rip-off of Radiohead's '15 Step' or just a homaging nod to their heroes. Listening through their new LP `White Night Stand' I'm inclined to go for the latter, as there's a bit of eclecticism about the record. Besides it's pleasing to see bands take influence from Radiohead's edgier material, than pilfering their most obvious moments, such as the way with (shudder) Keane and to a lesser extent Muse.

`White Night Stand' is one of those records that opens up the more you listen and I've found that my own appreciation of it has risen from mild indifference to itching to listen to tracks such as the deadly infectious ` Black Widow'. Like I said, UR are an eclectic bunch and this LP also incorporates elements of Krautrock (`The Russian Doll') ,No Wave guitar pyrotechnics, steamy and languid Shoegaze textures (`We Were Slumbering') and razor-sharp electronics (`Lucky Duck'),while the press release mentions a Liars influence, hinting of their experimental tendencies. 'White Night Stand' is out now on One Little Indian and certainly worth further investigation

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleep-deprived and skittish 13 Jun 2011
By Gannon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Having upped sticks from the city of love to the foreboding sprawl of London, Underground Railroad's third LP White Night Stand seems, perhaps understandably, to be product of insomnia and urban paranoia. With a base of post-punk and Sonic Youth to draw from their previous outings, Marion Andrau, Raphael Mura and company now daub from a darker palette in which psyche, post-rock and acerbic reverb all mix to contribute to this the band's most forward-thinking record yet.

Without question, the crunching percussion and eerie keyboard line found in "Lucky Duck", along with the sinister reverberation of the opener "8 Millimetres", catch the ear from the get-go. The latter's infectious tambourine adds a certain bleary-eyed bounce to its deathly boogie, but, sadly, it's a track that is possibly overlong - something that could be said a number of times during White Night Stand's fifty-minute running time.

All the same, there'll be few who'd cut anything from the 9+ minutes of the impressive "Seagull Attack". Ranging from a shouty clatter to precision post-punk to hypnotic tom-tom abuse all the way through to becoming a heavy, repetitive, string-enhanced post-rock monster, its varied pace, intent and volume all totally crush the tail order, almost completely rendering the comparatively dazed "Traces To Nowhere" and "Rude Awakening" obsolete.

Ultimately smudging itself out into echoes and doing so with uncharacteristic voice digitalisation, the drum-heavy experiment "We Were Slumbering" introduces a prog-cum-post-rock feel that segues it into Oceansize country. The high-end guitar wails in "Ginkgo Biloba" reinforce this feel, its shadowy math-psyche running on otherwise unaffected.
