Review - The DoLittles - The Domino Effect

The DoLittles - The Domino Effect

View The Review

4 out of 10

1-boring 'clever ska' 2-radiohead-lite, not unpleasant 3-nirvana v lite 4-'the ballad' euch. 5-see 3 6-see 2. Another above-average sixth-form tribute band.

The DoLittles have been honing their sound in Taiwan since early 2006 and are poised to unleash it upon an unsuspecting Britain later this year. I wouldn't worry, though - it's a sound Radiohead perfected, dismantled and kicked aside years ago. Unfortunately for the DoLittles, this leaves them sounding like yet another above-average sixth-form band. The Domino Effect is a vaguely pleasant mirror on the recent past but the rest? Burning Hemingway somehow manages to make Ska sound pretentious. Secret Fire and All This Flesh attempt to rock things up a bit but thanks to the weak vocal don't really manage to do anything but trip over Billy Corgan's little toe. Let The Leaves Fall is 'the ballad' - least said about that, the better. Treading Water continues the Yorke and Co. worship. Need to DoMore.
