5.0 out of 5 stars Escape into fantasy worlds, 24 Nov 2013
This review is from: What Makes Us Glow (Audio CD)
It was great to hear Psapp were back with their first album since 2008's The Camel's Back. The tracks and sounds on the album signal that some things have changed, but fundamentally their style is as loveable as before.

It's quite a short album at 40 minutes, but this has been the standard length of their previous full releases. The twelve tracks have the feeling of being hand crafted and specially selected to entertain.

Some of the standout tracks for me were the single Wet Salt which is lively and bouncy and features one of their favourite electronic organs, the philicorda. The Cruel, The Kind, The Bad is about escaping a relationship but deals with it in an optimistic way as it swings around in a fairground-style with an old trumpet playing in the background. In the Black is great with its faster tempo, folky influences, banjo playing and showcasing Galia Durant's beautiful voice exploring a poignant story. In Your Hot Knife there are lots of electronic touches, soft fuzzy noises, repeated sounds, distortions and the pleasant ring of a bicycle bell.

Their use of found sounds and inventive, unusual instruments are pleasing to hear. The themes are sometimes darker, but the mellow electronic organs and layered melodies make the experience otherworldly and brings a smile to your face. It is an excellent follow up.
