Which Bitch? review

An album of wild extremes that have the tendency to grab your every sense one moment and then annoy the next as it veers from honky harmonica to meandering folk to hard-nodding rock hewn from musical granite. Ambitious? certainly. Experimental? Definitely. Accessible – sometimes with power-packed force of stuff like 5 Rebeccas, the half-rap of One Off Pretender, the triumphant rock fanfare of Double Yellow Lines and current firepower single Shock Horror. Yet it also has its more inaccessible and, well, challenging traits – try to get your head around the punkified raucous Glass Smash, the weird orchestration of Distant Doubloon and a bizarre trumpet-laden duet with Paolo Nutini.
