ShadowParty (Mute) ROCK

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - CULTURE -

This col­lec­tive, cob­bled to­gether from mem­bers of New Or­der, Devo and oth­ers, drop a de­but al­bum that’s brim­ming with ideas but strug­gling a lit­tle with ex­e­cu­tion. A strong sin­gle, ‘Cel­e­brate’, en­joyed some trac­tion dur­ing the World Cup, while ‘Present Tense’ makes a play for main­stream ap­peal and fea­tures vo­cals from Denise John­son, who sung in Pri­mal Scream dur­ing their glory days. There’s good stuff, for sure, but much of it is for­get­table.
