Love this album.
Not quite sure how to describe Future of the Left. You could call it indie but intentional indie albums are dull shoe-gazing affairs and this album is anything but. It's got bold noisy metal riffs, infectiously catchy songs and a sense of humour. There is definitely a punk aesthetic in the sound.
'Donny of the Decks' is a personal favourite. A genius chorus combined with a killer drum riff that will make you jump around like an idiot. So brilliantly simple you'll wish you'd thought of it.
The off-beated riff in 'I Don't Know What You Ketamine' is so good it's difficult to describe without using expletives. 'Future Child Embarrassment Matrix' is ridiculously heavy for a quirky alternative band from Cardiff. For three and a half minutes Slipknot can get stuffed.
I have listened to this album way too much. I am in danger of wearing out the CD. It's ace.
