It’s 16 years since the Avalanches’ era-defining ‘Since I Left You’. How can a follow-up that took so long sound so meh?
Album Review: Alex Winston - Sister Wife (Heavy Roc)
Alluring and cute, but blending in quickly with the beige alternative pop wallpaper
‘Locomotive’’s Bush-esque coos exhibit a strangely West Country child-woman voice, while the title track has a sedated Of Montreal-by-way-of-Marina glam-pop hip-hop shuffle, and ‘Don’t Care Anything’ comes on like a great lost Tanya Donelly track.
It’s charming, but nothing more than background. Whether she will push into more courageous territory still or plummet into blandness remains to be seen.
