"The Trees Grew Emotions And Died" EP from last year was one joyous dark minimal affair but their first long player shines away from their cold wave Iron Curtain leanings towards a popper New Order esque sound. In doing so I think some of their charm as been lost. It's an enjoyable listen and still well worth getting but just not the epic dark one that I was hoping for, I need the dark stuff.

I picked up their "Seasonings Greeting" tape single early in the year and now the new What's Up?'s debut LP has landed and certainly doesn't disappoint. Pulsating, hynotic and still as a pinch of The Advantage (Main man Robby Moncrief's previous band) in it. Im still waiting on road records to get the vinyl I order in but Ive been tapping in to its sultery playfull ways, having it stuck on repeat since I downloaded it three weeks ago.

Is there any light at the end of the tunnel, or is it cave with snarling packs of panthers and bears jostling for control, trying to keep your foothold with the hopefull, dogged Emperor X buzzing in your head.
