from wales, fantastic plastic have hit the spot once more with this tuneful quartet. race horse make their home town of llewelyn sound like it has a surf filled beach, no doubt with brian wilson ensconced as honorary life guard; but either way their sun filled sparkling pop is sufficiently lo-fi to compliment the twangy shuffling of the guitar. while it's easy to see why this welsh four-piece have been compared to gorkys zygotic mynci, this fast paced set is delivered with such force that theri wonky pop songs take on the gritty backbone of 60's garage. complex four part harmonies give them the air of a creepy barbershop quartet, while a self guitar ode to glenn millar's 'pennsylvania 6-5000' leads into an operatic solo with the confidence of a backwater 'bohemian rhapsody'. race horses are fearless experimenters and the fast-slow-fast-again approach keep the audience shouting and dancing till the feedback fades.
