Review: Jangle pop lovelies The Stroppies were pretty quick to return to the studio following their 2019 European tour. So quick they already have a new album ready to unveil, following on from the delightful 'Whoosh!', and the next record sees them once again deliver a collection of short, sharp but loose indie rock - sweet, seductive and reassuringly honest. Considering the niceness that seems to drip from every key and note, fans and newcomers alike will be happy to hear none of the energy or stomp has been lost. Opener 'Burning Bright' plays out like a thigh-slapping, boozy knees up. The title track sets a rollocking groove to hook you in, 'Rigid Men & Conduct Code' closes the LP on a timeless 60s rock 'n' roll tip. Of course numbers such as 'The Aisles of the Supermarket' peddle more shoegaze wares, but these are exceptions rather than the rule here.
