Boomkat Product Review:
George Washington Brown, although a name you might not have heard bandied about before, is no stranger to the music scene. Starting off his recording career as the male member of girl-punk-pop sensations Kenickie (now best known for birthing TVs Lauren Laverne, but we all know that 'Come out 2Night' and 'Punka' were pure hits) he then went on to make music under the J Xaverre moniker, garnering a whole lot of praise in the process. Before long he tripped and trotted into collaborations with members of Maximo Park and Field Music (you know, all the Sunderland lot... he probably knows Matinee Orchestra too, no doubt) and now finally he's put his name to a brand new record, and it's good, it's very good. I'm one of those people who will never lose a deep love for 90s indie, I go on about it way too much that's for sure, but there's a reason - and I get the feeling when I hear 'On the Plain Night' that it could have emerged from the Chemikal Underground stable, or from Che records, maybe even Fierce Panda. Those jangling Teenage Fanclub/Wedding Present guitars, the saturated vocals, the gorgeous, hummable melodies... well I'm sold. It's a shame that music like this doesn't get played on the radio much any more because when I turn that dial there would be nothing more pleasant than being greeted by some George Washington Brown - it's just got 'feelgood' written all over it without being irritating or trite. Absolute loveliness from the Static Caravan label, and just because they're nice people they popped a cd of the album in with the vinyl for you turntableless folk out there.
