soundtrack of our lives | Infra Riot
"I sneered at the band's name till recently, when I heard this track - a bizarre mash-up dream of awful and wonderful early-70s FM rock. Textured and not at all ironic."
the fall | Sparta FC
"Cranky and hilarious football/wartime analogy, with Mark E. Smith in top form."
le tigre | Très Bien
"The hard sugarbeats still sound great against the pissed-off shout-outs. Apparently the Pointer Sisters cover I heard live is on their new album."
