The Intelligence - Fake Surfers

This is quite possibly my favourate lp of the year, thus far. There is just nothing weak about this record. It somehow is able to be experimental, garage, shoegazer and noise pop, all at the same time, while still managing to be ridiculously catchy.

Intelligence seems to have hit their stride in 2009, with two killer albums, Crepuscule with Pacman (Born Bad Records) and Fake Surfers. I can’t decide which one is better, but Surfers does seem little more accessible. From the delightfully silly Pony People to the feud song aimed Portland band Eat Skull, it’s just reeeeeeeeeeeally good! (In The Red, 2009)
