It's hard to make a rock band with just two band members but Joe Taylor and Adam Brinson make quite a racket with this solid EP of brittle indie rock. 'Monk' occupies the territory between Pavement's guitars and Queens Of The Stone Age's moody vocals and on 'Peaches And Cream', Brinson squeals like Placebo's Brian Molko yet the music backdrop is deliberately lo-fi and brittle. 'Losty' is the duo at their best as a catchy chorus dominates whilst the riff is perfectly suited to alternative radio play. By comparison, 'Friends Like You' is a decent song slightly tarnished by some over-reaching vocals and finally the distinctly slower 'Jenny G' is all sinister slow-building dynamics; consequently revealing more depth to their oeuvre. Granted, Blag'ard's rough-hewn approach won't endear them to everyone but their visceral, dynamic music can be surprisingly infectious.
