Album review:

In this confused age, when major labels no longer account for half of the GDP of Bolivia, but a band so primitive they can barely walk upright (Twisted Wheel, in case you were wondering) can still get a lucrative record deal, we really need bands like Dutch Uncles. Hailing from Marple on the outskirts of Manchester, but somehow signed to a German indie label, their scratchy post-punk racket effectively draws a line between the first Futureheads album and Vampire Weekend. On the likes of ‘I Owe Someone For Everything’ frontman Duncan Paton’s idiosyncratic yelping can be a bit annoying, but when they stop trying too hard, as on ‘Twelfth’, the results are quite pleasing. And, hey, in these troubled times, at least they are trying.
