Having to double check whether or not I’d popped in a mid-90s Sonic Youth disc, I was happy to find that the sombre yet menacing guitar lines were that of Halifax’s favourite husband and wife duo, Dog Day. “Blackened” is a deadly crooner while “Wasted” and “Joyride” are upbeat, showcasing some spooky vocal harmonies and peppy guitar-work. “Get High” is a brooding stomper that would make Eric’s Trip proud and “Sandwich” is quite filling - a wall of monotonous yet hooky noise for your head holes. The group’s best effort yet.
