“You’ve Got Charisma” uses the guitar and bass like a loop. The vocals are like something from the POSTCARD records era. The cut and thrust of the slide guitar add a giddy edge to the track, whilst the vocals are almost narrative and don’t even pretend to add any melody. The middle eight guitar part adds further substance to the feel of the song which relies on its instruments for memorable phrases. Which isn’t a bad thing as guitars and drums kick up together and churn out an off kilter enjoyable groove.
The accompanying tracks, “Aniceed” and “Yummy” have more click-shot drums and rasping guitars, with more than a tinge of the blues. Blatantly different and referencing everything it probably shouldn’t. Refreshing.
