Boomkat Product Review:
Properly charming songs from psyche folk foremen Youngs and O’Sullivan, stripped down to essentials with some of their most pop and wryly punkish results for Tim Burgess’ label
Conceptually bound to using only four chords and never changing key, the pair, respectively known for some of the most vital experimental psych/folk songwriting from this septic isle in recent decades, inventively work within their constraints with hugely diverse and enchanting efforts spanning post-punk jitters and sublime folk soul and country hitters created between their Glasgow and London bases at either end of the country.
Written using what they term “the glittering formula”, the 12 songs are nakedly endearing, succinct cycles that never outstay their welcome, making room for the Suicide like clip of ‘First Throw Of The Ocean’ and strung-out folk blooz beauties such as ‘Touch of The Sun’, alongside chamber doowop in ‘Don’t Hang With Angels’ and gems reminding of the late, great Blue Gene Tyranny in ‘In The August Dream’, and right thru to cod-dub lilt and droll kosmiche synth-pop throughout the album’s gently kaleidoscopic turns.
