Drowned in Sound about the gig in London last week:

They draw heavily from Vantage Point this evening with mixed results; Barman’s delivery rasps wonderfully menacingly and while impossible to begrudge the band showcasing recent wares, ultimately the sheer impact of road-tested material for the most part dwarfs anything else. ‘Bad Timing’ is awesome, layers upon layers of volume and release, though the aforementioned notion is most pertinently evident in the sole offering from that album of theirs I hold most reverent – introduced by Barman as some “lighter entertainment” while strapping on an acoustic guitar, ‘Instant Street’ is airier, looser than anything preceding and greeted with suitably huge applause.
