TEMPORARY PLEASURE

19 Aug

feelit

Not sure why we havn’t posted any Simian Mobile Disco of late. Their new album Temporary Pleasure has seen mixed reviews not withstanding a beating from NME. So, in genre-mashed mid-2009, SMD have actually taken a step backwards by, yes, making an album of dance music for indie fans who don’t like dance music. And that it isn’t resoundingly terrible (as background music it’s passable, as long as you can’t actually hear it properly) is due to its general beigeness rather than the sparse flashes that illuminate it. Leave your brain running unsupervised for 10 minutes on the bus and you’ll end up humming ‘Temporary Pleasure’ even if you’ve never heard it – it’s less an album and more a mental screensaver. Hello yesterday.” Has Ben Patashnik the author of such a tirade against SMD made an album of late? I can see where he is coming from if all you listen to is Indie music but these songs are for the at home chiller and are quite enjoyable in your car on the way to the coast, you will never hear them when your out on the town, but who cares? I enjoyed them.
