Detroit punks hone their ample strengths on a third album that's pure rock 'n' roll
Album Review: Wet Paint - 'Woe'
Aloof homespun English tones of optimism
Singer Babak Ganjei, formerly of doleful London alt.country types Absentee, has a terminally unimpressed English tone that lends these chunky, solid and satisfying songs a more genuinely homemade feel than the American-accented likes of Yuck, bringing it closer to Graham Coxon’s solo work or forgotten ’90s alt heroes Tiger.
Though themed around such uplifting ideas as age, regret and despair (summer’s here, folks!), the album’s predominant vibe is warm and easy, and we’re glad to say ‘Woe’ is us.
