The Human Value - The Human Value
Released September 13th, 2005
Big Deal Records
Duo that has quite a following in the UK, receiving all kinds of love from the likes of NME and DIVA Magazine, find themselves still in the early stages of powdering their creative edge in a landscape of thick new-wave influence and sexy male/female leads.
How Is It?
Besides Turu’s seductively deep vocals and droning, stressed instrumental layers, this self-titled album is a virtual scavenger hunt of any aspect withholding the slightest lasting value. The “dress in pearls” dinner-party maturity and syrupy textures are burnt out after the band’s single “Give Me”, conveniently placed as the first track. “Nashville #5” is just as good, but lacks the euro-danceclub remix handle the latter has. The flow is there, the sound their own, but there needs to be something in there for me to come back to.
