Murry The Hump : Songs of Ignorance
Delightful Welsh nonsense
Despite its title, 'Songs of Ignorance' reveals a canny aptitude not only for hook-laden guitar tricks but also story-telling. Matthew Evans' exaggerated Welsh accent (which, weirdly, makes him occasionally sound exactly like Tom Verlaine) presides over tales of car alarms and carnal encounters with tongue-in-check earnestness, while MTH's off-kilter melodicism puts them somewhere between the bucolic surrealism of Super Furry Animals and the cerebral pop of XTC. 'Thrown Like A Stone' and 'Colouring Book' have a country and western twang, 'Don't Slip Up' rides a crest of wired feedback and frothy falsetto, and 'Valley Girl' plays like slo-mo Pixies. Fuzzy logic? Definitely. And all the better for it.
