I’ve been meaning to write about this album for ages. I suppose ever since I got a copy of their single ‘RE:Peater” sent over to me last year, I knew I couldn’t wait for the album. So here we are some 7 months later, i’ve been listening to the album for a couple of months and I’m glad to say it doesn’t disappoint in the slightest.
The first thing that hits me, as it did with the single, is that She’s Hit are loud, like really loud and not in a horrible thrashy racket way, loud in the way that you just know the person recording the album has a volume button that goes up to 11, not 10. It’s a bit like when you’re watching the telly and all of a sudden the adverts come on 10 times louder than the programme was. So, top marks on the volume front.
The album opens with title track ‘Pleasure’ and sets it’s stall out as an album which will give you a good kick up the backside. The vocals almost sneer and spit at you and guitars clunk and echo around your ears. It’s a full on aural assault which continues throughout the rest of the album. ‘Part 1’ and then ‘Lustless’, still mercilessly feedbacking and wailing, give a brief respite but is immediately trumped by my standout track RE:Peater.
All in all, it’s a great album, sure you could say that they take influence from the Jesus and Mary Chain and Iggy Pop, but at the same time they sound like nothing else going about here at the moment. Also, if you do get your paws on a copy of the album you will be rewarded by a second album with each track on the album receiving a remix courtesy of a variety of different artists including, Dam Mantle, Remember Remember, The Unwinding Hours and Fox Gut Daata.
‘Pleasure’ is out now on RE:Peater Records and you can pick up a copy over here at the RE:Peater store.
