Boomkat Product Review:
These New Zealanders draw as much influence from '60s experimental psych-pop as they do from the post-punk world, bridging a gap between Velvet Underground-style downtempo melodics and the noise-rock distortion textures of early Sonic Youth. The resultant album is a meeting of tunefulness and blurred guitar haze, with a few meandering organ tones thrown into the bargain. The spook rock of 'Premonitions' is an especially fine moment, taking an 'I Wanna Be Your Dog'-style chord progression with a creepy retro sensibility, while 'Crown Of Teeth' manages to sound upbeat in a kind of Jesus And Mary Chain fashion. The closing number, 'I Saw My Ghost' strips down on all the buzz and clatter for a largely acoustic piece of psychedelia, laden with echo and wah-wah guitar weirdness.
