Wild Beasts’ fifth album is a Tinder-tastic display of carnal desire
Album Review: The Answering Machine - 'Another City, Another Sorry'
Onetime Manc buzz-band come good on their own terms
They were way, way too good to be ruined by the bulbous oafs that stalk the halls of major labels. Thankfully they got out of the heat and worked out some rough edges in their own time, choosing to release records on their own terms later down the line.
The result? Well, Mustafa is in the bin now, they’ve got a real drummer, and on the evidence of the Elastica-esque ‘Obviously Cold’, the Smiths-y chimes of ‘Emergency’ and a new recording of their genius cow-punk debut single ‘Oklahoma’, they’ve shaved off the ‘near’ from the front of the phrase ‘perfect pop songs’. This is a fantastic debut.
