Midnight Juggernauts - 'Uncanny Valley'

‘Uncanny Valley’ is like listening to a latter-day Oasis album: too weakly reminiscent of past achievements to really satisfy.

Midnight Juggernauts - 'Uncanny Valley'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 22, 2013
  • Label: Record Makers
6 / 10 Six years ago, Tame Impala’s touring buddies were a breath of fresh air, their Ed Banger synths and prog tendencies fitting perfectly with their times. But the world has moved on, and Midnight Juggernauts haven’t. That’s no crime – their mix of cosmic electronics, live drums and winsome vocals remains pleasingly woozy, and their songwriting knack is evident on the rolling chords of ‘Memorium’ and the rousing chorus of ‘Ballad Of The War Machine’. But ‘Uncanny Valley’ is like listening to a latter-day Oasis album: too weakly reminiscent of past achievements to really satisfy.
