A really wonderful record; Electrelane have taken the best bits of their first LP and their 'I want to be the President' EP and pieced together a raw, imaginative and self-consiously arty second LP, of which 'The Valleys' is a clear highlight, and the best song I've heard in the last 12 months. Really really worth your time.

Having just been exposed to Joy Division this summer, it's hard for this reviewer to ignore the similar kind of vibes I get from this, the second LP from Brighton's Electrelane. Steve Albini [The Pixies, Nirvana] seems to restrain his usually dirty production for the whole of this album with the exception of "Take The Bit Between Your Teeth" in lieu of doing his best Martin Hannett impression and even then doesn't do over the top. The all girl group is for all intents and purposes frozen on record in this sparse and doomy yet morbidly moving piece of desolation in a fairly timeless fashion for future generations to discover. The overall sound is much like Patti Smith fronting Ian Curtis' ill-fated band specifically on the "Free Money" influenced "Birds" [Horses, "Birds" ... Hmmm] except for the crisp quality of sound which time and technology have afforded us. Most of the time I'm forced to imagine a stilted Verity Susman, lead singer, screaming out into the night from some isolated, dark alley in the lower/middle class section of a decaying, country nonspecific metropolis, one of the last romantics suffering for the sins of a generation whose idea of love comes from and dies in J. Lo movies and McDonald's commercials. Music this soulful has no right to be made in the 21st century.

On hearing Electrelane's session on the John Peel show I was immediately impressed. Their balanced style draws upon a variety of well-sourced influences from punk to folk. This diverse range creates a strong and eclectic sound of their own rather than merely style-switching between tracks. Electrelane also have a rare ability to make a tune dramatic and passionate whilst keeping the tune uplifting rather than descending into an oppressive self-indulgence.
Standout tracks include The Valley, Oh Sombra!, and Enter Laughing. Definitely the best album I have heard in a long time.
