Album review:

There’s an unwritten quality/audacity ratio that states that any band with a song called ‘The Woot The Hot The Hotness’ must be either mind-numbingly amazing or eye-rollingly cack. For about 12 seconds, Data Select Party stake a fairly decent claim to the former with ‘The White Bear’’s opening gambit of angular Dartz-cum-Johnny Foreigner pop-punk, but the steep descent into nasal pseudo-Americanism is merely a drumbeat away. Most disappointing of all, though, is that the six-song manifesto of ‘Hanging Out With Humans’ is, in reality, one exceedingly average track on constant repeat. Time to hang up the saddle guys, your one trick’s wearing pretty thin.
