This review is from: Rolling Blackouts (Audio CD)
This album is a breath of fresh air in a stale indie scene full of stadium bores and their hollow epics of nothingness. Taken as a whole Rolling Blackouts is a mad carnival of sound, ranging from Grand Royale style breakbeaty punk, to Phil Spector-ish wall of sound 60s pop, to early Lush style dream-indie, to even what sounds like Brian Wilson doing cowboy western soundtrack music ('Yosemite Theme'). So kudos to this band for going all over the place without ever coming off as pretentious or 'quirky' for the sake of it. Good good stuff.
