Around last year's debut album there was some talk that Aberystwyth's Race Horses' psych-surf could fit them into the Welsh oddity space left untended when Gorky's split. Gleefully eclectic, this first new material since then is more immediately widespread approachable, with hints of pre-Moroder Sparks (via, erm, Euros Childs solo) and the hi-hat and synth-strings of early 80s pop-disco production. No, stop that, it's by no means as overwhelming or blatantly neon-signed obvious as most do in that sphere. Hell of a set of hooks too.
