Rumble Strips need shaking up


DESPITE the insinuations of the band's name, this latest album from The Rumble Strips failed to rouse me.
In fact the Tavistock-based Rascals-style indie band's second album, Welcome To The Walk Alone, is a pretty smooth ride from start to finish - as you'd expect from an assured producer such as Mark Ronson.
However what is unexpected is the lack of acceleration at any point on the album - for a group that spawned six singles from their debut, Girls And Weather, it's hard to pick out this LP's killer track.
So while the overall quality is high, it's a plateau from start to finish, meaning as a listener Welcome To The Walk Alone has barely registered before it's saying goodbye.
