Beautifully packaged LP from this great indie/twee band. Silk-screened, three-color cover with rad, pink polka dots. Sixteen-page booklet with lyrics for 50/50 previously released and new tunes. I remember hearing and liking this band in the ‘90s, but I don’t remember them being this good. Amazingly strong twee pop for the K/Slampt crowd, reminiscent of the best of the Crabs, Tullycraft, and Go Sailor with a British feel. This is an extremely difficult style to play well, and there are tons of really bad bands who try. But when it is done right, it is killer and Milky Wimpshake nails it on every count. That is coming from someone who has loathed ninety plus percent of all indie rock I have ever heard. This fucker pops!
