saki 010 - 1996
A definite maturing in the band’s musical sensibility, execution, vision, & cohesion and a major leap from their previous efforts. Their almost constant touring since \"Peel\" came out honed their already keen pop breadth and depth to razor sharpness on this offering. It’s composed of ballads, some flat out rockers, some somber, almost folky Nick Drake-ish numbers, a pump organ funereal dirge, & of course a few well-crafted catchy pop tunes with the kind of flair that only they can muster. Recorded with Stuart Moxham (Young Marble Giants), Bob Weston (Shellac, Volcano Suns) & by themselves on a four track in their loft.
