Move To Trash
Dreamy, tremulous jangle-pop odds’n’ends from David Yetton, who played in fitfully brilliant Flying Nun combo The Jean-Paul Sartre Experience in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. The solo material collected here, all home-recorded in 1998-2010, is very much in the vein of JPSE’s much-loved classic ‘Fish In The Sea’ - hushed, intimate, minor-key indie-pop, gently propelled by Yetton’s soft yearning vocals and stained-glass guitar shimmer. He’s always sounded more British than a lot of his peers, and sure enough there are moments here where you could swear you’re listening to Razorcuts or East Village or something. You never doubt the depth or sincerity of his feeling, but he's also self-aware enough to title a song ‘The Ballad Of The Miserable Self-Indulgent Pillow’ - big up. There are some anomalies - the dour synth-pop of ‘Leather Boots’, the droning ultra-alienation of ‘Don’t Ask’ - but for the most part this is about quiet, crepuscular love songs, from an undersung master of the art. So good.
