5.0 out of 5 stars Read all about it, 20 May 2013
This review is from: Balcony Times (MP3 Download)
I had the great good fortune to see Milk & Biscuits live recently, supporting British Sea Power, who they rather upstaged. I'd not heard of them before but,luckily, they were utterly enchanting & worth the price of the ticket on their own, which was just as well, since BSP were a tad below par on the night. I've since bought/downloaded everything that I can of theirs, which unfortunately isn't that much at the moment (this Balcony Times EP & a single, White Noise), but I believe that there's a new album on the way, & they certainly played some stuff live that you cannot download at present. I find myself playing this album (& White Noise) every time I get in the car, & haven't got bored yet, even after 4 weeks. It's quite hard to describe their style or genre, but certain parts of certain tracks remind me of the following bands: Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, Stereolab, Grandaddy, The Delgados. However, they have their own distinctive way of putting tracks together, with a pleasantly fresh feel, at least partly created by the seemingly whimsical collection of instruments used (flute & trumpet, alongside more traditional rock instruments) - it works well on MP3, but was even better live. They are based in Brighton & seem to do gigs there fairly regularly, & you could do worse than go along & give them a try, along with this album.
