While Asobi Seksu aren’t 100 per cent twee, they certainly dip their tootsies in the ripples of Lake Cutesy, and as the huge NME office debate about Los Campesinos! has proved, twee is both divisive and of limited lifespan. We loved the candy floss take on shoegaze when their first two albums came out, but to be finding ourselves spoon-fed re-released tracks from second album ‘Citrus’ two years on is a little disappointing. While we’re not asking for a Lush rendition of ‘Year Of The Pig’ (actually, can we have that next please?), something new would be nice.
