Value Void - Sentimental

Record of the Week is Sentimental, the rich and jangling debut album from London (via Buenos Aires) trio Value Void.

As much as they can sound sunny and full of sunset melancholia, they whirl up some pretty brooding pieces with some sinister vibes, psychotic timing on the riffs and a mad-eyed beat. That is one of the treats of this fine debut, it moves around loads with folk and all sorts played out in a very proto-punk way beneath ghostly double vocals. No retro styling, they just recorded it onto tape, and the effect makes it hard to place them anywhere between 2018 and 1988.

LP is pale green vinyl and limited to 500.
