Boomkat Product Review:
Hailing from Calgary, Women are (with a certain amount of inevitability) an all-male quartet, specialising in a stealthily rather innovative line in trashy guitar clatter and addictive pop harmonies. The echo chamber garage rock of 'Cameras' manages to cram a lot into its 61-second duration, proving a tantalising, if slightly disorientating opener. 'Lawncare' and the strange, droning 'Woodbine' make for interesting dirges, evading all lo-fi rock & roll preconceptions, but it's only when 'Black Rice' arrives that the record well and truly takes off. By this point the band have well and truly nailed their sound, managing to sound soaked in '60s West Coast harmonies whilst also providing plenty of scuzzy muscle from the saturated drums and scrunched up guitars. The album was recorded by Chad VanGaalen, who's clearly contributed greatly to the record, imbuing the production with a gritty pop romanticism. 'Group Transport Hall' is another perfectly formed nugget of joy, though it barely breeches the one-minute mark - Women can be such teases. Far more satisfying is the groove-based 'Upstairs' which features some scratchy violin noise and a feel best accounted for as like Radiohead's 'The National Anthem' on a bedsit scale. Gnarlier climes await on the brash, distorted 'January 8th' and 'Flashlights', which both encroach upon Sic Alps turf, cranking those distortion levels ever upwards. Highly recommended.
