SLUMB PARTY: Spending Money: LP

Here is the second long player from this edgy post-punk outfit which also imbues its music with quite a bit of danceability, if your dancing style is a mix of Ian Curtis and David Byrne. It’s certainly less frenetic than the debut album and that results in me finding comparisons to XTC at times, with a slightly more measured approach and an ability to focus on the melodies more. Get your groove on and get those hips a-shaking! –Rich Cocksedge (Drunken Sailor, drunkensailorrecords.co.uk)
