Going on two decades, Comet Gain have become something of a jangle-pop institution now and it seems that the band has no intention of calling it quits soon. Their latest takes a more autumnal turn for the band, eschewing some of the uptempo crunch for a bit more of a sway and stumble 'round the garden feel. Of course the band still can't help but break out into a brittle pop explosion once or twice but for the most part they seem content to let the edges mellow in temperament if not necessarily content, David Feck still sounding in fighting lyrical shape here despite the sunset hues. Perhaps the swoon was introduced along with new bassist James Hornsey, he of ex-Clientele lineage and sporting a similarly puddled jangle past. Whatever the reasons, as my own dancing days take a downturn this one is hitting a soft spot of summer sway that seems to halt the swelter of oncoming August. Feck and crew have never really flagged in their embrace of the proper feel of ''83/'84 prime pop and they only guild their reputation here with a spot on example of jangled brilliance.
