quick take : horrid red : pink flowers (ep)

Horrid Red - Pink FlowersSounds like Joy Division for once not because of a gloomy baritone voice, but because bass and guitar parts recall Peter Hook and Bernard Sumner. Also sounds a bit like the instruments were at one of a tunnel, and the recording equipment was at the other. Some of this is hooky and/or pretty enough to compensate, notably the title track (more New Order than Joy Division, with the bass popping forward to carry the melody over big pillows of fake strings), and the graceful instrumental, “Vanished Along the Canal.”
