Intelligence - Fake Surfers

This album looks to be a promising contender for one of 2009's best. The LP keeps interest with a variety of sounds and genres explored. It starts with an almost droney psychedelic sound - twangy guitars with vocals bobbing beneath the surface. It then moves through a mix of super catchy distorted pop, retro surf pop and lo-fi garage punk. Not boring or repetitive in the slightest. 100% recommended. Look out for this on In The Red later this month.

Love The Intelligence. Bordom and Terror and Icky Baby are GREAT, Deuteronomy with the exception of 2 tracks was pretty bad, and this sounds like a return to form for Lars and friends.
