Boomkat Product Review:
Just look at Slow Club's adorable faces. Already that's 1-0 to them. But in addition to looking like lovable stuffed toy versions of indie popstars Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor have successfully supplied an entire album's worth of the exuberant boy-girl skiffle that characterised those early Moshi Moshi singles. Yeah, So is a triumphant full-length set from the Sheffield duo, recorded with Richard Hawley's engineer Mike Timm - which surely adds extra rockabilly reinforcement to these jaunty duets. After the lo-fi, pared down romance of opener 'When I Go', the album really starts to kick in with the Jenny Lewis-like 'Giving Up On Love', the riotous 'Because We're Dead' and recent single 'It Doesn't Have To Be Beautiful'. Even on the more sedate numbers Slow Club sound comparatively filled with vim and vigour, delivering a frostily beautiful Taylor-fronted ballad on 'Sorry About The Doom' and really outdoing themselves on the bristling 'Come On Youth'. Very nice indeed. Recommended.
