While not as dizzyingly intricate as their follow-up, Cadenza, this debut album from Manchester's Dutch Uncles is still unutterably wonderful. I love particularly the chiming, whizzing Jetsons, but there are four other songs (Takeover, Steadycam, Face In, I Owe Someone...) as joyous as anything on Cadenza.
For the uninitiated, Dutch Uncles 'swim in the same soup' as Field Music, Everything Everything, and Wild Beasts. I can hear Sparks, Steve Reich, Television.
For the lucky few of us who already have Cadenza, this will happily plug the gap until their next album.
