5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful noise., 14 April 2008
I bought this album on the strength of a review I read somewhere, the name escapes me.

Ok, back to the point, Horrrssing - this album is definitely not for the mainstream - therefore for the people that 'get' this album, they will really really enjoy this noise, drone, soulful, melodic album.

I really cannot thing of a comparative band for this band. Create a precedent for yourself and get yourself a copy of this album. This album will widen your taste of the musical spectrum, that I guarantee.

I first heard of Pete and the Pirates through the music of Tap Tap. To those who are educated in the ways of Tommy Sanders will know what I mean. To those who dont, Tap Tap is one of many of Tommy Sander's bands.

The press have drew parallels with the pirates with Arcade Fire, but personally, I think these guys have more talent, raw it may be. If you like Wolf Parade etc, you will like these guys more as they do it better on a more consistent basis over the course of little death.

The Pirates tour quite a lot over the UK, I even got the chance to see them in Belfast last year and it was great - Come on Feet live was bloody brilliant.

Pink Mountaintops - There is so much to write about this little band from Canada as the press has not shone upon them (yet).

This album opens up with the seemingly reflective acoustic 'Comas' with a nod to AC/DC. Next Track, Cold Criminals sounds like the hot fuzz of The Velvet Underground with Mc Bean sounding like a howling Jim Morrison and the guitar sounding like a velvet beat, a definite nod to the Velvets. Pink Mountaintops find their dark side here, from here on in, its dirge.

New drug queens is possibly the most youthful tune on the album, sounding like a teenage rant, 'tell yer mamma gonna stay out late tonight'.
