Good but not great.
on 25 May 2012
I love tame impala so was excited to hear these guys, and whilst this band have a similar blissed out summery vibe and certainly have thier moments they really lack Tame impala's songwriting skills.
The songs mainly sound a bit half baked and just a bit too loose to satisfy.
(Plus most of the riffs and ideas dont really go anywhere).
I find the main problem is the vocals which become irritating after a couple of songs and are frequently too high pitched and cringe worthy, which is a shame as there are some interesting ideas here.
So all in all a pleasant record in places but not worthy of the hype.
Cant wait for the next tame impala album though!
(Finally, are this band really not aware of the fairly well know SubPop band of the same name? That seems a bit unusual)
