Boomkat Product Review:
Brighton quartet Pope Joan release Hot Water, Lines & Rickety Machines as their debut mini album, presenting a band bent on fusing together choppy, angular punk with a strange, modern-day take on Britpop, ultimately sounding rather like a less earnest Bloc Party over much of the album, although somewhat freakishly 'Our Cuisine' brings to mind the sort of thing you might have heard on a Menswe@r record way back when, with shades of modern day offenders Young Knives, or at a push, a more discordant Kaiser Chiefs (Hot Water, Lines and Ricky Wilson anyone?). This turns out to be something of a freak occurrence though, and tracks like 'Its The Same As When You Asked Me The Last Time' have way more of an alt. emo influence bringing us back to that Bloc Party reference, a notion consolidated by the epic and quite superb 'A Pocket Of Change'. Arriving immediately prior to that, 'An Alternative Route To The End' throws in some nicely crunched up electronic beats, which further expands on the band's range but doesn't intrude on their central, guitar-propelled impetus.
