    Smart, fun album. "Haarp" and "Ledmonton" radiate wicked energy. A little on the gimmicky side with the medieval themes, so it's not for everyone, but I really dug it.

  1. One hears a variety of influences on this 2009 release, including no wave, psychedelic rock, art rock, 1980s post-punk, Brit-pop, and even folk at times; all of those influences serve Clues well, and all of them add to the intrigue on their promising debut album.
  2. Striking stylistic tics like this pop up all over Clues, and the contextualizing effect is undeniable: for good or ill, it’s nigh impossible to hear this album anew, free from preconceptions.
  3. As two musicians who may have gotten slighted, their self-titled album is an accomplished and impressive debut.
