Shy Child One With The Sun
- Words: Selena Hsu
- Label: Say Hey
Way to drum, spaztastics. These kids aren't shy about banging the hell out of their kit, that's for sure, and we're all better off for it. One With The Sun's barely got melody, underpinning most of the songs with repeating series of half and whole steps that stay within a four note range. The dancey punky musicality comes instead from the minimal, boyish sing-song funk and the inventive, jerk perfect drumming. "Technicrats" is just handclaps and sass, and the title track is all claws and hypnotic propulsion, getting surprising mileage from the bare bones engine.
