The Hundredth Anniversary - Wreckers

These are good times for fans of enigmatic female vocals and delirious guitar pop: Fear of Men, Flowers, Heaven's Gate, Little Big League and Butter The Children.

This very welcome trend, to which The Hundredth Anniversary's new EP is the latest addition, owes something to MBV's disembodied vocals over gales of feedback and something else to The Sundays' spectral atmosphere.

Wreckers is 5 tracks of strange wonder. It had me reaching for The Catchers' Mute again after far too long and that, as anyone who knows it, is recommendation indeed.

Only 100 copies of these so don't sleep.
