Summer Cats “Songs for Tuesdays”

July 19, 2009

They’re from Australia, which means it’s actually winter right now. Maybe they spell it “wintre”? Enquiring minds want to know.
All the songs are pretty short, and they have a lot of indie rock energy. It seems that they would be quite good live, but in the studio, the jury is a bit out.
“Fulton Gurls” is harmless fun, but it feels as if something is missing. There are backing vocals, but they don’t add anything to the song. “In June,” however, puts it all together. The music is reminiscent of the Blake Babies, although the singing is not as prominently focused (but then again, there’s only one Juliana Hatfield).
“Wild Rice” has keyboards at the beginning, and it sets the tone for another fun and catchy song. Why can’t all the tracks sound like this? I hope Summer Cats can make it out here. It’s definitely about the live show with these guys. It’s just got to be the case.
The keyboards in “Christopher Wren” stick around a little longer, and guess what? It’s the best song on the album. Funny how that works. Also good is “Waking Up.” It has that older Heavenly or Manifold Splendour sound.
The album is very inconsistent, but the gems are truly great. Pick and choose, and you can’t lose.
