Coupla new ones up from the always excellent UK label Prefect Records, the label run by Owen Williams ( Joanna Gruesome, Ex Void ) and Mark Dobson ( The Field Mice), but “Home Business” from GN stands out for breaking a bit from the label’s past releases. Still sliced off of the indie-pop peg, but this one also has a serious infection of rhythm pushing the band away from the downcast Bristol set that the label often takes its inspiration from and instead cribbing bits of Talking Heads, Cleaners from Venus, and Arthur Russell over a propulsive slink. The band is the initialed output of Welsh, London based songwriter George “GN” Nicholls, and like pretty much anything that Perfect has put out so far, these scant bits only make the listener hope for more.
