These subdued careerists have migrated, over the years, from noise to bent cocktail music. Now they slither in several directions at once, with some of their most interesting results to date. The nine-minute "Mind to Be Had" is a motorik epic that always has a nice chord change around the corner. "No More Honey" builds to warped guitar curls worthy of My Bloody Valentine. "Cat on Tin Roof" hops along with a mildly tense bassline, before a burst of ersatz organ reroutes the tone. Sticky melodies will never be their top concern, but you'll remember several of the moments here.
