Format: Audio CD
Blood Red Shoes are a true reminder of the power of simplicity. One guitarist/singer, one drummer/singer, no bass or synths or unnecessary filling. Such a direct and minimal approach does demand effective performances and these come in glorious, sneering melodic chunks from guitarist Laura mary and especially drummer Steven.

This album was a long time coming and the band were probably wise to record fresh and spiced up versions of their popular tracks (established from previous EPs) such as 'It's Getting Boring by the Sea'. There are few duds here and the highlights such as the explosive single 'This is Not For You' and the excellent 'Take the Weight' (with its pass-the-parcel boy to girl vocal) are ideally suited to loud play in the car whizzing along a sunny motorway at the weekend.

Blood Red Shoes are best experienced live for their raw energy and enthusiasm but this debut captures a great deal of that experience.

I'm the first? Seriously? In a music market dominated by pop rock bands and here today gone tomorrow youth acts, a 26 year old electronic music fan is getting the first review of this? Come on people, this is actually a good band for once! Make an effort!

The last 3 records I bought were:
Trentemoller - The Last Resort (Electronic)
The Village Callers - "Live in 1969" (Funk and Soul)
An opera CD (I forget which one) (Opera)

I don't really know how I happened across this one, the whole of contemporary rock has largely passed me by, so there's probably more out there like this. As far as rock goes I would rate Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's Howl as my favourite rock record of all time, getting a 6 out of 5, as it seems like such accidental genius, and I really love the Duke Spirit, Autolux and a bit of Melt Banana, but thats it really. Rock has become quite throw-away in recent years, but this is rather good. Not that different, just done much better than the rest I have heard.

They're like a photo negative of the White Stripes, what with strumming duties being more than ably applied by their very lovely female lead singer/guitarist and terrific drumming prowess and vocals being supplied by the male half of the duo. Its a lovely wall of sound they make, that sounds suspiciously like the Arctic Monkeys and White Stripes at times, but I forgive them. They really are much better than those bands and should be a big group, if not in number. Their ability to play their instruments to their maximum ability and sound like a 4, even 5 piece band is very impressive.

I'm off to offset this weekend for the sake of 4 bands, 3 of which I have seen and know are amazing live...the other is blood red shoes which I heard one single of and then bought the album on the strength of that..they have a fantastic tight sounds, which I can see could possibly be said is samey, but when you want to hear that sound buzzing in your ears for 40mins its perfect!!! I cant personally say a bad word against this album. I love it!!! Roll on this weekend...for Future of the left, Young Knives, Maccabees and Blood Red Shoes!!! :):)
