I mean… what happened here? It’s very rare for an outspoken, verbose DiS journalist to be caught with their thesaurus-ed pants down, but… what can one say about Lemon Jelly’s ‘The Shouty Track’? It’s an odd thing; one vocal looped over and over a nothing gentle electronic track.
In an office where we’ve been swamped by new records from Doves, Idlewild, LCD, Arcade Fire, The Silent League, Mercury Rev, Athlete, Daft Punk and many, many more - all of which there are many tens of valid points to make - this just feels like a waste of our and their time. It stands to reason that the release of this is decidedly low-key and in fact the packaging is as unassuming as the track itself. Roll on the (hopefully more substantial) LP…
