Saw these guys live recently at Gwyl Gardd Goll festival and they were fantastic. This album manages to be poppy, experimental and interesting. Although they've taken a few cues from Super Furry Animals, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci and (most notably) Pulp, Race Horses manage to make a sound that is completely fresh and original.

If you get the chance to see them live, I strongly recommend you do so. Failing that, this album is a great way to get to know them.

Great summer tunes; this album deserves to be heard!

The Race Horses are a great live band and their album Cake doesn't disappoint. It has energy, beauty and quirky humour. They are clearly the heirs to Gorky's Zygotic Monkey, although with a bit more adrenaline. At times they seem to be channelling David Bowie. There are a lot of catchy songs on this, including the title song which has the hero seduced into a cake addiction by his girlfriend. Fresh, funny and very, very listenable to.

This is the best album I have bought this year. This up and coming welsh band combine great energy and creativity with a sound that is both beautiful and eclectic. The melodic tracks provide a great soundtrack for the summer!
