Dutch Uncles


Memphis Industries


Released: 25th Apr 2011


if you enjoy your pop hooks delivered with zeal & in multiple time signatures then dutch uncles should definitely catch your attention. drawing on the eccentricities of sparks, the piano methods of steve reich & the unhinged prog-pop of cardiacs they create an interested concoction of high-brow pop, the closest comparisons being with fellow northerners field music. at every turn the songs take on unexpected shapes, & this makes for some cerebral listening, but they measure this with catchy riffs & vocal melodies that always invite the listener in rather than alienate with pretention. “from the xtc school of complex time signatures, talking heads go math-pop” - the times, “cadenza is so much better than alright: it’s more than a little brilliant” – bbc.
