BREAK­FAST MUFF EURGH! AMOUR FOO, OUT NOW Straight-talk­ing lo-fi Glaswe­gians get to the point.

Q (UK) - - Q Review New Albums -

Mix­ing rudi­men­tary lo-fi garage-rock, a blunt line in lyrics and al­ter­nately abra­sive and ca­ress­ing boy-girl vo­cals, Glas­gow trio Break­fast Muff’s de­but al­bum makes up in en­ter­tain­ment what it lacks in so­phis­ti­ca­tion. They cer­tainly aren’t afraid to tackle The Big Is­sues: RU A Fem­i­nist slyly nails male at­ti­tudes to sex­ual pol­i­tics with its open­ing line of, “You’re a fem­i­nist un­til I won’t fuck you”; I Like To, mean­while, un­am­bigu­ously cel­e­brates dif­fer­ing sex­ual pref­er­ences (“I like to suck dick/You like to eat pussy”). Their best mo­ments come when they slow down and let their melodies come to the fore, most no­tably on the sur­pris­ingly ten­der Clam. There are no hid­den depths to find here, but sugar rushes aplenty. PHIL MONGREDIEN Lis­ten To: Clam | RU A Fem­i­nist | Birth­day Party
