Catchy and interesting indiepop with boy/girl vocals from Hamburg, Germany / RIYL: Orange Juice, Summer Cats
This quintet from Hamburg, Germany caught my ear with their brilliant single on Cloudberry Records, the A-side of which ('Heavy Heart') reminded me quite a bit of Summer Cats, but with beautifully layered female vocals. Then I heard their split 7' with Honeyheads on Dufflecoat Records and was taken in by the equally great 'Neon Ant Colony'. When the band asked me to release their debut album, I naturally jumped at the chance! Though only ten songs long, this album is quite multi-faceted, going from the driving and melodic 'The Lane' and 'Lover Not A Fighter' to the playful 'Can't Treat Me Right' (with a ragtime piano part!) and gentle 'Mostly Harmless', which nicks the chorus from an Orange Juice classic (and the singer does a good Edwyn Collins, too!). Plus, you have to love a band where everyone sings! Overall, a really solid album, and it contains my favorite artwork of any Jigsaw release to date!
