With That Knife
La Shark are one of those bands doing eerything right. They got a chap
doing beautiful art, they got their own club (nobody else is doing it
right apparently) they've even got a bunch of songs that, while they
sound great on record jump out at you live and drag you into a kind
of vortex of vaudeville oddness that's seen them packed off on tour
with the likes of Paloma Faith and leave me stood at the side of the
stage grinning rather foolishly.
Beaty Heart aren't a particularly standard proposition. Loops, tribal
drums, shouting should inspire dancing or at least mouth agog admiration.
Lazy comparisons: Animal Collective, El Guincho...
"the talent and cohesiveness is just plain jaw-dropping...Delightful
basslines and riffs combine with snth created noise and kickass drumbeats
all amidst any of 4 vocalists letting loose, making for some splendid
sounds indeed." - Second City
