Boomkat Product Review:
There are flashes of excellence on this record, the work of a former model Carmen Hilestad, which is styled very much after post-grunge alt.rock, from Beat Happening through to Murray Street-era Sonic Youth, but approaches it with a contemporary Scandi-pop sensibility, a bit of early MTV / AM radio swagger and crisp production befitting its home on Smalltown Supersound. If there’s a criticism to be made, it’s that it never quite settles down in to one thing or the other - Hilestad doesn’t seem to know if she wants to be Kim Gordon or Chrissie Hynde, Carrie Brownstein or Lykke Li. This indecision is perhaps understandable given how comfortable she sounds in all these different modes; she can do badge-wearing introspection just as well as she can do grandstanding rock balladry. The highlights are certainly high: ‘Two Towns’ is fantastically slouchy, fatalistic jangle-pop reminiscent of Veronica Falls or early Camera Obscura, and ‘Obedience’ is an unlikely synthesis of Rowland S. Howard-style existential blues and fractious, speaker-scalping dub.
