Album Review Starcrawler - Devour You3-5 Stars
It’s all hips, handclaps and riffs, lots and lots of riffs.
Jumping in puddles used to be a right laugh, didn’t it? Nothing used to beat putting your wellies on and just having a little run around in the rain. You probably miss it. Starcrawler certainly do. ‘Devour You’, Starcrawler’s second, pines for the good times, making you realise that the whole adulthood thing is completely overrated. ‘Lizzy’ is pure unhinged Bo Diddley, Arrow De Wilde’s yelp having a new-found depth, adding a tinge of sadness to Starcrawler’s madness. ‘Home Alone’ is the song Yeah Yeah Yeahs would have made if they’d decided to inject Iggy Pop’s aging phlegm directly into their veins rather than mess around with those synthesiser things. It’s all hips, handclaps and riffs, lots and lots of riffs. It isn’t perfect, but you’d be hard pressed to find a record as fun as ‘Devour You’. So, next time it’s chucking it down outside, you know what to do. The puddles are calling you.
