A pot pourri of styles from Denmark, this time courtesy of Diefenbach who have made an album which acts as a collage for the state of modern alternative music. Thus they kick off with some post-punk guitars, electro-clash keyboards and heavy percussion all in the first song. Not many would expect glistening electronic/disco pop to follow but that's what happens on 'Make Your Mind' and by the third track, Tortoise-like post-rock has been successfully conquered as well. Yet even though each style is taken on with reverential skill, the sheer eclecticism means that Diefenbach suffer from a lack of identity, merely a mixture of the sounds other bands make. Despite that, 'Ibrahim' is an impressive slab of Mogwai's aggression and the soulful harmonies and warm guitar melodies of 'Up For Ping Pong?' is, crucially, the most unique offering to be found here. As this is only their second album, though, perhaps more coherency will be on display next time.
