I'm no connoisseur of post-punk but Grass Widow spring to mind as Cross Stitch open up. 'Close The Door' is so-so but then the quality ramps up with 'Blue Blue' and I'm enjoying this. The intentionally monotone vocals work well, though they feel a bit copycat, and the instruments keep a good rythm. 'Sex Standing Up' is a highlight and is the first time I get a sense that the band are truly doing their own thing: fast paced dual vocals and crunchy guitars, yes please. On the other side, they continue in this vein but don't hit the same heights. Kudos for the bonus track about dinosaurs and pizza though.
