Boomkat Product Review:
Magnetophone have always had a panache for fancy packaging, an admirable affliction they have continued here with the initial copies of 'The Man Who Ate The Man' wrapped in a fantastic slipcase and further bolstered by a set of exclusive 'business cards'. Four years on since their debut 'I Guess Sometimes I Need To Be Reminded Of How Much You Love Me' and Magnetophone have matured no end; trading in their sketchtronica, which had a nasty habit of self destructing just as it hit its stride, for a much more structured sound that can happily support a buffet of collaborators. Opening in familiar territory, 'Let's Start Something New' is sun-bleached electronica wrapped in a myelin sheaf to rival prime-time BOC, before the Phone take on a rock-fractured sound through 'Kel's Vintage Thought', wherein the Breeders' Kelly Deal guests. Elsewhere, 'A Sad Ha Ha (Circled My Demise)' sees the Fence Collective's big cheese King Creosote contributing vocals to a lambent backwards love-song, his protégé HMS Ginafore adds a carbonated tenderness to the My Bloody Valentine-esque '...And May Your Last Words Be A Chance To Make Things Better', whilst the babbling folk of 'I've Been Looking Around Me' is made all the more bitter-sweet by James Yorkston's 5am lilt. Lovely stuff.
