There's an argument that there are too many shoegazing bands on the indie cicruit. There's another argument that there are too many melancholic electronic bands around too so when the two styles combine it's surely asking for trouble. Pure poppycock of course and credit to London duo Weevil for raising their heads far enough above the FX pedal to embrace current technology. With the downtrodden melodies of 'Half Smile', 'Too Long Sleeping' and 'Splinters' they match the The Notwist for pop accessibility. 'Silver Rails' is one of a few tracks to use a New Order bassline but its chorus is Ride-shaped. The masterstroke, however, is 'A Million Things' an epic of desperately sad piano chords, drum machines and perfect harmonies. In a herd full of similar artists, Weevil's album shows a strength in depth to propel them above the masses.
