Lounger

By Dogs Die In Hot Cars

Tumbling from bumpy jangly bit to even better bumpy jangly bit, Dogs Die In Hot Cars' latest morsel is a dizzy stumble through a maze of all the best bits of pop ever invented fused together with colourful bits of Meccano. 'Tis a shiny, polished, bubble-car of a thing and should really only be listened to whilst clutching a plethora of squeaky helium balloons and consuming some candyfloss and sticks of rock.

At the same time as being a bit of a fun novelty confection, Dogs Die In Hot Cars masterfully avoid becoming downright silly. Fizzing pianos and winking, hide-and-seek rhythms skate on too-much-happiness-for-your-own-damn-good thin ice, but quickly hop it off the frozen musical pond in the nick of time before a great big chasm appears and we all fall prey to inane stupidness. The fabulous 'Lounger' is then brought to a suitable close with a "La la la" trail and a few yodels. Yay!

Half a star knocked off for B-side 'Mandarins' involving Craig Macintosh leading the chant "I've got mandarins in my cheeks", which, you can imagine, gets a bit annoying after a while especially when coupled with the fact that it makes no real sense. Quickly play the A-side a bucketful more times to rid yourself of this experience... and once again be absorbed in a technicolour-bounce-romp-bundle-of-joy!
