In truth this wasn’t on our planned listening schedule for the evening, but i’ll be honest in saying that we’ve been hopelessly smitten with ‘going blank again’ which recently reconnected itself to our sound system after a near twenty five year absence having recently found ourselves giving it a spin for posterity. All those years on, a new album imminent – later this week as it happens, via Wichita entitled ‘weather diaries’ – with this – ‘charm assault’ being sent ahead on scouting duty. Clearly on form and hitting their stride, ‘charm assault’ indeed picks up the threads from that aforementioned 90’s album, the intervening years evaporating, the band renewed, reinvigorated and connecting with their younger selves, from out of the familiar trademark chiming haze and less feedback striven melody emerges, more rounded and swiftly heeled upon a strutting biff bang pow grooving that purrs, pulses and pushes vibrantly amid a strut coiled kaleidoscopic kick.
