Boomkat Product Review:
The only thing I can really bring to mind when I think of 'Black Helicopter' is 80s tv show Airwolf. You guessed it, it was about a black helicopter and it's somewhat haphazard chop-up of the A-Team was rather endearing for children like myself at the time. Well there's certainly cultural references aplenty with the lead track 'Buick Electra' dedicated to the "best car ever built" and 'Casio' dedicated to the sound of old 80s keyboards. It shouldn't come as a surprise then that their sound also has one foot stuck firmly in the past - noisy rock with nods toward Sonic Youth draped in vocals straight out of 1995 indie. I actually still harbour a lot of love for that era of rock music so I can hardly begrudge the band dragging up these influences, and I must say they do it pretty fantastically. 'Invisible Jet' isn't the most original album you are going to hear this year but crucially it's a blast to listen to.
