"The brand new album from ex Rollerskate Skinny vocalist ken griffin, his band are basically the jag jaguwar outfit aspera, this is their debut album having released two singles so far, the album opens up with a real blast of distorted noise rock calling to mind a mix of the layered guitars of my bloody valentine and the catchy melodic sounds of Echo And The Bunnymen, the album is full of this kind of infectiously catchy and very melodic guitar heavy underground rock sounds, griffins voice is perfect for this sound with a superbly raw edge to it, the odd track hints at some rootsy american acoustic rock with some lovely slide guitar and piano."
