Dance those winter blues away. Glasgow’s finest nerdtronica – in the sense they’re slavishly dedicated to unveiling ever-intricate ways to make us shake a leg – quartet have returned with a second album that takes the charm of their debut and cranks up the rave factor. ‘Supertribe’ is an irresistibly bouncy trip through three decades of electronic music while ‘Sorry About The Mess’ lets the Mogwai influence bubble carefully to the surface, and threaded throughout ‘Come Down...’ is an attention to detail that makes the drops heavier, as on the pummelling ‘A Rumour In Africa’, and the post-rock soundscapes much, er, soundscapier. A phenomenally fun record.
If you didn't know, Defeater / Alcoa frontman and all-round top bloke Derek Archambault is in need of a new hip. The good news is a LOT of people have been helping out by donating to his PledgeMusic campaign. Are you one of them?
