More idiosyncratic pop, this time from Psapp; an English duo who possess the quirks normally associated with Japanese or Scandinavian countries. Whilst Carim Clasman is credited with production and guitar duties, Galia Durant plays keyboards and sings like a rather eccentric little girl trapped in a doll house. As can be expected, several bases are covered; for instance, opener 'Hi' employs a new wave/electro sound, which is succeeded by the altogether jazzier 'King Of You'. After this excellent start, Psapp lose their way a little towards the centre of the record where the tendency towards woozy melody begins to become formulaic. That said, 'New Rubbers' is injected with Durant's most tearily effective melancholic turn and the Oriental-flavoured 'Eating Spiders' will stir the listener back to life. Largely, this is a fine album to hear if you like "plinky-plonky" melodies but the similarity between many of the songs and the sense that Matthew Herbert has performed these ideas already - both with Dani Siciliano and Roisin Murphy - suggests Psapp's time may have already come and gone.
