    Read Review

  13. 7.7 |   Pitchfork

    It’s silly enough to cause skepticism and charming enough to make you wonder what kind of scrutiny Screamadelica or Thrills, Pills & Bellyaches would meet if they were released in 2013
    Read Review

  14. 7.2 |   Beats Per Minute

    Mindlessly hummable and pure of vision, Howlin’ sounds just as good coming from your headphones as it does from Marshall stacks

  15. 7.1 |   AltSounds

    A brilliantly miss-matched, muilti-coloured ball of hedonistic energy and darkly-tinged fun perfectly set for festival crowds
    Read Review

    The dumbest piece of dancefloor fun since the heyday of Fatboy Slim
    Read Review

  17. 7.0 |   Uncut

    Sit on the cusp between classicist indie rock and dance music. Print edition only

  20. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    Luminously lit melodies led by anagogic lyrical structures
    Read Review

  21. 6.0 |   The Observer

    These grooves are floppy-limbed, loosely propelled by basslines that sound like ones Ian Brown left behind under a pub table
