Like Morrissey fronting Big Black crossed with Deerhunter! Yes, that good.-This album doesn't quite live up to either their live performances (thank you YouTube) or the first (mini) album I heard (Children of Desire), but at their best, one of the freshest rock bands around. They are reported to be into dub and jazz, and it is possible to hear all sorts of influences at work, not forgetting Krautrock. Could be massive if they keep innovating and believing in themselves.
Really loved this - Anxiety's Door in particular is great, and hard to get out of your head once you've heard it. Music is sometimes brash, sometimes mellow, and the vocals are outstanding, sort of Morrissey crossed with Iggy Pop
Merchandise are a band with lots of ideas, big filthy psychedelia post-punk ideas. Anxiety's Door and I'll be gone are spectacular!!! And a lead singer that guess what...can actually sing! Listen out for the lead guitar line in Anxiety, it will be stuck in your head for days, and would do any rock and roll band proud!
