Boomkat Product Review:
Following up their ace 7" 'Peppermint', up-and-coming Yorkshire-based indie stars Spectrals deliver a seven-song mini album for Moshi Moshi, having previously cropped up on such fine imprints as Captured Tracks and Slumberland. Both tracks from that 7" are included on this set, which gives a pretty full account of mainman Louis Jones' classic pop know-how. The band takes its name from Phil Spector but is equally in the debt of vintage American soul productions and the DIY impulse of garage rock. 'Dip Your Toe In' patters along with a charmingly bluesy bubblegum feel, while '7th Date' drops that well-worn 'Be My Baby' beat and proceeds to drop further references to '60s girl group sounds. Towards the end of the collection, 'I Ran With Love But Couldn't Keep Up' really brings out the best from Jones, ploughing through a slinky, slow-moving groove before the closing piece 'Bonus Jam' raises the tempo again for a spot of Dick Dale/Ventures inspired surf guitar.
