    Inevitably, this strand of the release contains more obstacles for those unable to cope with the bedroom-birthed murkiness of the album as a whole. However, with some fine-tuning this less guitar-centric side of Keel Her could rise more positively to the fore in future.

    These 18 short tracks comprise a refreshingly un-self-conscious reinterpretation of lo-fi punk, '90s slacker rock, shoegaze an d bedroom electronica, but each one dodges categorisation. [Mar 2014, p.78]

    Across eighteen tracks, no matter how long they might be, quality control is bound to be something of an issue so alongside the cracking motorik electro instrumental of 'Overtime' we do get the morose 'Women Lost In Thought' or the noise-mess of 'Missing Time' but these are small detours from what's a pretty engaging record.

    Its mixtape nature means it isn’t yet the concise album Keel Her might one day produce, but the breezy likes of ‘Go’, ‘Riot Girl’ and ‘Don’t Look At Me’ are tuneful pop pastiches in the vein of Dum Dum Girls and Ariel Pink.

    Taken as a three quarters of an hour lump, the narrowness of her vision is brought into sharp relief, as Keeler-Schaffeler struggles to salvage a bona fide record from admirably restless blogging.

    It may not be entirely successful, but it could well be looked back on as the acorn from which a bigger tree grew.

    The material on Keel Her is probably best enjoyed one by one--17 tracks at once is a bit much.
