Boomkat Product Review:
Much-hyped genre quirked duo Jockstrap excrete polite hybridized stage school dance-pop on their Pitchfork/NME/Guardian-approved debut.
There's a pervading air of perfection that hangs around "I Love You Jennifer B" worked to within an inch of its life, 'Neon' is almost brilliant: that Breeders guitar crunch + punk-not-punk mannered croon from Georgia Ellery and stage-managed distorted saturation just to remind you it's not mainstream.
If you've read the PR roll, you'll know that Jockstrap had assistance from an 18-piece orchestra, seeking to mimic the camp theatrics of Van Dyke Parks. Pop has often benefited from high level ambition, but where Joanna Newsom bent American music-hall tradition into bizarre and brilliant new shapes, Jockstrap sound like a hyperpop-era disco cover band on 'Greatest Hits'. The strings may as well have been sampled, and the crippling, algorithm-friendly nostalgia makes everything un-memorable.
By the time the album's finished you'll be craving some grot to rupture yr flesh a little. "I Love You Jennifer B" is so good it's bad. Frankly, it's what we deserve. God save the King etc.
