You know that bespectacled music snob friend of yours who hoards Guinean post-punk reissues and frequently derides your music purchases as plebeian retrogressions? This is the piece d'resistance of their 21st century archive. Previously released in Europe, The Notwist's hazy blend of lo-fi indie skronk, hazy post-rock-isms and inventive electronic bleepity-bloopity coatings have wisely been picked up and amended with bonus tracks for the domestic market by the shrewd people over at Domino. Don't let all that academic hyperbole obscure the sheer visceral enjoyment of their redefined rock-outs. This is the band Radiohead will be ripping off for their next album.
