• plastic crimewave sound Painted Shadows (CD, £4.95)

    label: A Silent Place

    The title is inspired by a practice used in German expressionist films. The album has a more cosmically devotional vibe than past LPs, touching on eastern folk-blues and elongated krautrock-like soundscapes, with new elements of banjo, violin and female voice added to the stew. However, there is still some trademark PCWS rocking, as they continue to deliver blasts of motor city-type acid-punk, Japanese-style skree and waves of tension and release.
