Tangents Review "Breakfast In New York"

'Seldom have I been so effortlessly blown away on hearing a record'

Similarly priceless is the five track album sampler by Oppenheimer from which this track comes. Seldom have I been so effortlessly blown away on hearing a record. It happened when I stumbled on their ‘Breakfast in NYC’ at the end of last year, and it’s repeated to the power of ten with these five tracks. On this evidence Oppenheimer are the saviours of magical Pop, making such an emotionally charged positivism it’s almost scary. With grunging guitars, spangling synths, vocals beamed in from Mars and the best ‘ba ba ba’s’ this side of the mighty Pipettes, this is the sound of all of yesterday’s tomorrow’s today. With the album due on the Bar/None label sometime in the Spring, there can be no better reason for wishing the winter days away.
