DRINKS

Hippo Lite (Drag City)

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE -

The sec­ond al­bum from Welsh singer Cate Le Bon and some­time Fall mem­ber Tim Pres­ley is a charm­ing, lo-fi ex­cur­sion that doffs its hat to early 1980s in­die and post-punk. At times, their songs fail to get out of the blocks but there are sev­eral com­pelling mo­ments, in­clud­ing the bare-boned ‘When I Was Young’ and the quirky, catchy ‘Cor­ner Shops’.
