The Nightjars

This debut full-lengther from Manchester’s The Nightjars is a case of could-do-better, as all good debuts should be - only without too many early gems.

The overall productions isn’t punchy enough, the attempts at psychedelia aren’t psychedelic enough, there are jumps in vocal volume where there shouldn’t be, etc., etc. Still, the band have potential; Valentine echoes Roy Harper in more than just the title, Recognition In A Crowd trips merrily along with Radiohead and Husker Du, but it’s left to Logic Has No Part In It to show any real spark. Still, as a first attempt at working with a larger canvas it’s not bad and the Wicker Man-like cover art is great!
