By Charlotte Hatherley
Charlotte Hatherley, you've shamed me and I deserve it. Having not got much from a first hearing some months ago, I misguidedly turned my back on a lot of innocent pleasure. It takes various forms: a rubbery frolicsome Kate Bushiness in the title-track; the drum-reliant bouncing jollity of 'Mr Ed' where Charlotte gets some nice stuff out of her guitar; the spooky-but-cosy sub aqua feel of 'Cousteau' smooching along like an aspirational lifestyle commercial; and finally back to 'Behave', this time in Luke Smith's remix. A couple of hundred years ago I think someone of that name reworked copper plates by William Hogarth, thus making their strange wonders available to a wider public: a benefit achieved here by a bobbysox vocal and buzzy moaning guitar leading to a final passage of drummed eagerness.
