    Alex Winston is capable of writing some excellent indie-pop gems, she just hasn't figured out to do it with consistency.

    King Con is essentially a pop record full of catchy melodies and a shrieking singing style that will either set your heart aflutter or prompt you to punch a wall. [May 2012, p.84]

    It's a little one-paced and unlikely to win prizes for originality, but King Con has enough kooky charm to entertain, if not enchant. [April 2012, p.107]

    It feels too affected to be truly effecting.

    A joyless listen in and of itself, sure--but moreover, this is a puzzling eyesore exemplifying quite how this process of constructing and immediately normalising eccentricity can still have an appeal.
