Now abit about the bands…
Last year, under the name Milk Maid, Martin Cohen released Yucca on FatCat, a fuzzy,jangling record that switched genres with each track. On one song, the Manchester bedroom artist would paint himself as a 1990s indie rock devotee. On the next, he’d be fingerpicking a quiet, echoing folk song. With “Do Right”, the first track he’s letting go from Mostly No, the shapeshifting continues. Here, he takes the form of a screeching, reverb-drenched West Coast grunge fan. – Pitchfork
Some people can spend 5 years slaving over an album. Jolan Lewis spends about 5 minutes, bangs it out and forgets about it – sometimes to the point of not actually remembering to let other people listen to it. With new track Sunspot Dandyline, though, he seems to have put more effort into making the production less muddy – maybe a sign of a new level of maturity, but maybe an acceptance that some people struggle to hear the rad tracks underneath the fuzz in his old work. Whatever the reason, the new found shine really suits old Temple Songs. – Lost Lost Lost
