Boomkat Product Review:
The title track and 12" opener "Left Handed" has somehow managed to entrench itself deep in my mind and has refused to let go, digging it's claws deep into that part of the brain that holds on to things like melody and flavour and forces you to think of little else for days on end. This is just the perfect guitar pop song, the band giving their instruments a bit more of a shake and a rattle, flexing the drums and guitars into a wieve of noise, melody and beauty that's utterly compulsive and totally unforgettable. Like the Breeders at their Pod-era peak or a lesson in how to turn the lamest New York punk-induced spunk cut into a rock-out masterclass in brilliance, the Puna have returned with an absolute killer!! Also, just for good measure, the band have included a cover version of the Giorgio Moroder / Human League classic "Together In Electric Dreams" which sounds exactly as you wouldn't expect it to, the Lali's employing a stretch of electronic constructions and whispering percussion over Valerie's vulnerable, almost broken and exposed delivery, a bit of a weeper in fact kids. In short.... aweseome stuff, purchase immediately.
