Review - Bastila - Bastila

Bastila - Bastila

6 out of 10

Oh God! You may howl, upon hearing this debut's opening track. Not more chirpy, indie cod-Ska! I hear you. Life isn't fair. Thankfully, Bastila have a smidge more imagination than to simply try and wring one more career out of a genre that should've been shot at birth. No, it's worse - I mean 'better' - than that; they also polka. And reel. And psych. And jig. And everything in-between. To generalise for the Twitterati - think Last Shadow Puppets without Turner's attention-grabbing voice but with Syd Barrett and Arthur Lee's drugs. What's in the water on that there Isle of Wight?
