Tracklist: Gallops - Joust

Wrexham's finest (though admittedly their competition is K-Klass and Andy Scott from The Sweet) have been compared to Battles more often then they'd ever like to be reminded by smartarse bloggers, but that's what you get with cymbal-happy metronomic drummers, squelchy electronic pulses and obliquely racing Kraut guitars. Here they apply dirty great steel toe cap boots to the formula, smashing all over the first minute and a bit before racing away in the motorik on ice style to which they've become accustomed. Then it all becomes very technically complex as guitars evolve into a state of pure math before some stop-start carry-on at which everything turns into an Errors-ish digital playground. All very synthesized rigid mania, and all very exciting for their ongoing prospects. It's out on limited edition 7" in mid-April.
