Album Review: Autons
The Autons -'Who do you think you are kidding?' (Jelly Maid Music)
Whoomph! It's only the first week of 2009 and this has arrived, packing a very mighty punch and ready to make you sit up and listen. The Autons' second album is the sound of a band ready to blow away all the cobwebs of insipid indie rock and show how beats and mighty guitar riffs can comebine together to produce something truly intoxicating.
I've been walking around with this on my headphones for the last week or so. It's something really special Hell, I want to have a party so I can play this record really loud as the soundtrack to it. This record will make you sit up, and make a new year's resolution to dicsover something very different in 2009.
Dismiss them as another electro-rock band at your peril; with each listen, this release becomes more and more necessary. Tracks like 'Amazing' actually...are. 'Election Singer' has already been a single; I'm sure there will be others to follow, and if there is any justice, hits.
