Wet Leg Live Up to the Hype on Their Debut Album: Review

The weight leg is specially gifted to convey the gaudy uncertainty of attraction; Watch “Wet Dream,” which balances out taunts like “What do you think you’re good enough to think about me when you’re touching yourself?” With attractive offers to visit home buffalo 66 on DVD. They are just as good at depicting the outcome of a breakup; Watch “Ur Mum,” at which Teasdale declares, “When I think about what you’ve become, I feel sorry for your mother,” and counts to a piercing initial scream. On “I Don’t Want to Go Out”, she beats herself over self-destructive tendencies (“And now I’m almost 28, still getting away with my stupid face”), only to get defensive. When a prior level criticizes the same “no o.” Far from just a series of punchlines, the album is a fleshed-out universe with intentionally flawed protagonists. Wet Leg even let their guard down sometimes, as in “Loving You” and the acrimonious “Piece of Shit.” And then there’s the massive grand finale of the record.

“To Let Now” is a slow-built powerhouse, dreamy and moody and anthem as it wrestles with indecision in the face of a harrowing world. Upon release last year, it proved that wet leg twin Goofs were far more versatile than “Chase Long” and “Wet Dream.” Yet the song’s answer to life’s troubles—”I just need a bubble bath to set me on a higher path”—is the kind of line that undoubtedly caused some of Wet Leg’s critics to decide Granted they’re indie-rock akin to a Pinterest-ready embroidered pillow. Often the band has been framed as a more basic and acceptable entry into a wave of talkie British guitar bands such as dry cleaning, yard acts and sports teams – a comparison they did not necessarily refer to Fontaine’s DC/Squid/Black MIDI producer Dan. discouraged by employing. Carey on the bulk of his album. But he also hired the famed Alan Moulder to do the mix, emphasizing his connection to the time-honored alt-rock canon. Far more than interlopers drafting a trend, Wet Leg’s album positions them as one of those acts gifted enough to transcend their moment, in continuity with the classics. are present.

A heavy dose of ’60s pop echoes through Wet Leg’s music: Said influences from the Ronettes and Jane Birkin, but also Kinks and the ’90s Britpop scene they inspired – the likes of Pulp and Elastica and Blur , and social commentary with their powerful hooks. Groovy post-punk pioneers like Slits and Delta 5 are in the mix, as are dance-rock descendants like Franz Ferdinand and LCD Soundsystem. The slick pop brilliance of slacker-rock Kings pavement, fellow fast-track Lightning Rods strokes, Haim’s sisterly camaraderie, the new wave party vibes of the B-52s, the mechanical coolness of surf-rock of the Pixies, the distinct descriptiveness of Courtney Barnett – all this and more. can be heard in many wet feetDozens of tracks. But rarely does a reference point overshadow the band’s own immediately respected identity, perhaps when they borrow a guitar line from “The Man Who Sold the World”.

For a while I could not understand the extreme reactions of the weight leg. On the one hand, Killjoy, so incensed by the band’s overnight success, lacks the ability to have any fun. On the other hand, I accepted that “Chase Long” was perceived as a fleeting lark and was surprised when the weight leg flew so fast. But on stage at a midsize club in Columbus last month, his melodious dynamics came to the fore. The sold-out crowd weren’t just responding to “Chase Long”—they were soon bouncing, singing and dancing to hit after hit and smiling in a way you’ve always had from a buzz band. Didn’t get The album crystallizes that sensation, applying enough polish to the formidable talent and charisma of these women without diminishing their homely charm. Wet Feet doesn’t position themselves like an important band, but with this magnetic album, they’re becoming important in spite of themselves. I hope they continue to annoy their haters for a very long time.
