Review - Situationists - Onwards And Upwards EP

Situationists - Onwards And Upwards EP

View The Review

8 out of 10

How hard would it be to print a track listing on the press release for a CD rather than just on the disc itself, hmm? It would take seconds, and it would make the lives of reviewers up and down the country much, much easier. Well me, anyway.

That's my main gripe with this record though, and for a band who quite shamelessly blend a plethora of Kinsella influences (American Football, Cap'n Jazz etc) which I love with just a hint of contemporary Northern Indie (Arctic Monkeys) which I hate that's pretty good going. They pull off the complex guitar work and time structures in a seemingly effortless fashion, and give it their own unique Sheffieldy spin at the same time. Well done lads.
