The High Violets – X-Tasy

Last year the High Violets took hugger’s fancy so much so that they breached its top 42 songs for 2007. A lot of the credit must go to Ulrich Schnauss though for his dramatic reworking which summoned the dream pop gods of the early nineties. This time however the praise is reserved purely for the Portland janglers. ‘X-Tasy’ as a title might belong to a time when the Shamen and acid house culture was peaking but the music is timeless, a baggy swagger with all the mannerisms of a classic Friday indie night floor filler. The High Violets may be out of step with current trends but for those of a certain vintage this is still where it’s at for arch entertainment. KD
