Boomkat Product Review:
If you're one of those folk whose brain soaks up music trivia like a box-fresh sponge, there's a fair chance the name Nina Walsh may seem familiar... Having worked with the likes of Andrew Wetherall, Primal Scream and The Orb, Walsh has taken a Goldfrapp-esque route to solo recording, with 'Memo's' her debut album despite knocking around the fringes for years now. Sharing a dreamy predilection with St. Etienne, Walsh's songs combine a lyrical immediacy with quite bouncy instrumentation that conspires to lend a very tacit sense of pop-rock to proceedings. Songs like 'Darkest Light' (think Drugstore collaborating with Psapp) and 'Love Leech' (honky-tonktronica) rattle along with an infectious glee that happily references Delia Derbyshire and Petra Jean Phillipson. Memo to self; have a listen!
