Violence and Repetition
Reviews by Chris Chinchilla
Rosie Kemp - Violence
This is one of the best singles I've heard all year, from the quiet,
delicate passages to the ear splittingly overdriven choruses of 'Violence',
to the heartfelt orchestra backed 'Morning Music' and the beautiful
harmonies on 'Tiny Flower', an amazing single that shows the brilliant
diverse talent of a promising artist.
Winterkids - Tape it
Sorry, this is horrible, bloody disco beats all over the place for no
real reason, stupid inane lyrics about taping a TV program and irritating
Xylophone plastered over the top of some horrendously recorded tinny
It's not a bad song, it has a catchy chorus, I'd just
like to take the band, rearrange the song, strip it down and rerecord
the whole thing to make the hooks audible and less grating.
Bass Clef - A smile is a curve that straightens most things
With a name like Bass Clef, it was never going to be Fay Indie rock
was it? Marvellous dark dub with fat (phat?) synth bass lines, frantic
beats and eerie vocal snippets, each track melding into the next in
an hour long slab of inventive dance music, a little repetitive in places,
but hey, that's the point.
