Temsecal Telegraph
 
Temsecal Telegraph Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $12.00
Artist: The Corner Laughers

The Corner Laughers fifth album marks their Big Stir Records label debut!   The record features guest appearance by Rex Broome (Armoires) and Bradley Skaught (Bye Bye Blackbirds).  “The Corner Laughers are a special band. Karla Kane rightly gets a lot of the main attention, but they are very much the sum of their parts. Khoi Huynh throws up McCartney-esque basslines and provides a fine rhythm section with drummer, Charlie Crabtree.  Meanwhile guitarist and longtime IDHAS hero, KC Bowman's playing allows the band to genre hop as they do, effortlessly.  Both Huynh and Bowman are both multi instrumentalists which allows a lot of freedom and inventiveness, the latter also recorded and mastered the album. However, it is not just the case of the singer getting the attention, Kane is the songwriter and her ukelele playing is prevalent. Her sugar sweet voice is all encompassing, coming in somewhere between Rachel Sweet and Kirsty MacColl.  The band are generally hard to pin down sound wise, and here this is even more so. You can feel the West Coast air on the songs, but they are also draped in UK Indie, a bit of Americana and some wonderful psych pop. There are at times hints of XTC in ‘Skylark’-ing mode or Robyn Hitchcock, so it makes complete sense that the only cover on the album is ‘Goodguy Sun’ written by Martin Newell. This versatility is probably best demonstrated by ‘Lomo Alta’, which is borders on freeform jazz.  Where as ‘The Calculating Boy’ is top notch psych pop with some fine guitar leads, ‘Sister Of The Pollen’ could be sung on ‘Ready Steady Go’ and ‘Wren In The Rain’ is pure St Etienne.  ‘Changeling’ is Kirsty MacColl borrowing Madness's piano and what a guitar break! It is an absolute gem of a tune.  ‘The Lilac Line’ has a bass line to die for, enhancing a sort of Americana pop, this band are so good that they've invented a genre. The ‘Accepted Time’ is a song for an imaginary film and ‘Skylarks of Britain’ is an outstanding slice of Canterbury Folk, the band turn into minstrels.  ‘Lord Richard’ comes across like a Robyn Hitchcock song written for The Seekers. ‘Temescal Telegraph’ is an absolute joy.  ‘Album Of The Year’ material for sure and well worth raiding your purse for.” – IDontHearASingle.com  EXCELLENT!!
