Boomkat Product Review:
Twee-Core? Sweet-Tronica? I don't know how you'd classify Psapp but they certainly have a sound all of their very own. You're all likely to know them better for their rather lovely releases on Arable not so long ago, but most Americans have now ushered them into their homes thanks to a theme tune placement for the hit tv show Greys Anatomy. Have you seen it yet? No I didn't think so, it's on Channel 5 and it isn't porn - my mistake. Well these two tracks are a taster of the forthcoming album, and the lovely heavyweight 7" is hugely limited apparently (aren't all these things lately?) and quite unsurprisingly the cover-art features front-lady Galia Durant's hand drawn pictures of cats. I think I'd like to believe that Miss Durant actually walks around town with a cats head on, playing hopscotch on Brick Lane as passers by stop and stare; Psapp are that kind of band. The music sums all this sentiment up perfectly with the A-side distilled from the scent of flowers on a summers day, and the b side coming across like a more authentic Lemon Jelly put through a Mr Frosty machine. Gorgeous stuff....Meooowww.
