  1. This is as good as any album post-punk/garage rock has produced in quite some time.

    Nothing new, then, but Manhattan is the indie equivalent of a guilty pleasure.

    The album clatters out of focus in a pleasing fashion.

    Skaters work best when they're not being too aggressive, letting the songs breathe while pushing the melodies out. [Mar 2014, p.94]

    There's a definite vim here; all they need to do now is to add in a little more of their own DNA. [Apr 2014, p.119]

    After three tracks of fast-paced garage rock, Band Breaker wrongfoots us with a lolling dub rhythm.

    It is churlish to dismiss a band after one record, however: there is potential here for so much more. This record, however, is the most irritating one you will have heard in a while.
