Album review

Sally Crewe & The Sudden Moves - Drive It Like You Stole It

Average song length: two minutes, but the staccato post-punk of Spoon's own work is retuned by Crewe into clipped, neurotic sexual and verbal aggression more akin to new wavers like Joe Jackson, and even new wave of new wavers like Sleeper (who are lyrically quoted).

Sneeringly in control when not running into trouble or falling apart, Crewe's persona is inspiring and insulting.

Fresh, frisky pop for mature, modern girls and boys.

Rating: 3 / 10
