LOST TAPES, THE: Inconvenience: LP

Post-punk that at different times brings to mind The Cure and The Psychedelic Furs. It’s got a gloomy feel to it, but the guitar sheds some brighter moments on proceedings, whilst the rhythm section is rock solid, itself verging into New Model Army territory on occasions. It’s that latter quality that draws me in, creating an inescapable groove that I’m more than happy to reside in. My highpoints are “Without” and “Turn to Red,” both of which are a bit more up-tempo and lighter in tone and, therefore, stand out a lot more. –Rich Cocksedge (Rockstar, [email protected], rockstarrecords.)
