2008-05-12This is the second release on Rough Trade Records by this Sheffield, UK band. Produced by Erol Alkan (Hot Chip, Daft Punk), this album has disco beats, sexy vocals, and plenty of electronica thrown in. If New Order re-formed with Long Blondes' singer Kate Jackson, the first track, "Century", is what they might sound like. The second track, "Guilt" could fill the dance floor with its cool rhythm guitar and Madonna-like vocals. The eighth track, "Erin O'Connor", rocks with disco drums and sounds a bit like 90's band, Elastica. The last song, "Going To Hell", rocks as well. Beware that this six minute song actually ends at four minutes, followed by two minutes of fuzz, which could easily by faded out on-air. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth
