Single Again

By The Fiery Furnaces

Coming on like a deranged DJ Shadow monkeyed off his eyeballs on uppers and downers, whilst various members of the Beta Band and the Delgadoes point and laugh, this is an eclectic yet energetic 218 seconds of mayhem. Marrying electro squelches and discordant indie kitsch is never easy, yet the brother/sister combo do so with aplomb, with the lead track ebbing and flowing like a British Sea Power. Delightful.

Elsewhere, Evergreen is all Catatonia vocals and fuzzy honky tonk piano, with a guitar solo straight out of Back to the Future. Only in a good way. The smoky vocals breathe real life into the song, whilst the quirky time signatures keep you on the edge of your seat.

Sing For Me meanwhile sees the duo take a lead from the Polyphonic Spree, replete with military rhythms and orchestral madness. However, this bores after just 54 seconds to be exact, going nowhere fast and with no one interesting. Two out of three ain't bad tho!
