Boomkat Product Review:
Having featured right at the top of Isan’s top 10 listening chart last year for their excellent debut 7”, it’s no surprise to discover the Tomcats in full-length mode bringing to life more of that Isan-ish analogue insistance and shimmering warmth. The flavour is distinctly reflective and beautifully childlike, as in the sublime opener “Fish and Butterflies” and its nostalgic padded beats and cinematic synths, or the piano-led lullaby tones of “Turbid Liquor”. The album stretches into more scattered, beat-driven territory, the intricacy displayed best on the excellent “Singing Bathtub”, with its broken Ae-ish beats and cascading vocal fragments. In all, solid, emotive electronica from one of the scene’s more promising new acts. Lovely.
