Slumberland newcomers Terry Malts caught our ears last year with a pair of singles that mixed crackling hooks with a fuzzed out garage style that'll feel pretty familiar to most RSTB readers. The album acts as an extension of the redlined fizzy pop that those singles traded in but overall ends up feeling a lot more coherent than either. Its a simple formula but when a band does it so well and with such a delightful exuberance then its hard not to get swept up in ensuing wave of crunchy fun. The lyrics bounce all over the map from religious autonomy to the usual woes of love and personal neurosis, all blanketed under a coating of their self administered chainsaw pop signifier. Definitely another great addition to the Slumberland roster.
