Review of Sweethead Album by Sweethead

Review of Sweethead's self-titled album.

Fuzz laden rock in the style of Death From Above 1979 but without the technical indie flair and some female vocals. The band come across all QOTSA in a few tracks, in a PJ Harvey in the Desert Sessions way, and the stoner rock influence is present throughout, although these guys seem to be more interested in having a good time. The album is full of hooks, it's well done and pretty damned stylish. However, the buried in the mix vocals combined with the downplayed singing style can feel a little forced at times, as can the discordance which normally would come across very well in a record like this.

Maybe it's just me but the record doesn't quite fit properly, and aside from a few stunners around the midpoint it only sticks for a few hours, then is swiftly forgotten. It's a great party record and would go down quite well in one of the many rooms in the film Shortbus, I feel, and if you get that reference, you get 10 points. I hate to describe a record as sexy, but it kind of is- although, as I said, it feels a little forced at times.
