Boomkat Product Review:
For those not already in the know, the self-deprecatingly titled Githead is the pop project assembled by Colin Newman of punk legends Wire, Robin Rimbaud (that's Scanner to you and me) and Minimal Compact veterans Malka Spigel and Max Franken. "Art Pop" is the group's third album and continues in the vein of their former successes, channelling Newman's knack for writing concise new wave-inspired pop music. 'On Your Own' typifies this, its chorus managing to be at once barbed and instantly memorable. 'Lifeloops' is primarily constructed from acoustic guitar layered above a few low-profile electronic patterns and synth textures, but given Rimbaud's involvement there's a comparatively understated approach to electronic production techniques across the span of the album. The heavy vocal treatments of 'Jet Ear Game' make for the most obvious break from this form, and the subsequent 'Space Life' boasts some pulsating phasing effects and drifting synthesizer, but it's not long before the band return to a more naturalistic sound, which is exploited with particular success on the closing piece, 'Live In Your Head', which manages to sound not too dissimilar to The Pixies.
