Pale Sunday - A Weekend with Jane EP
Label: Matinee Recordings
Format: CDS


Slightly forced, but also thoroughly enjoyable Belle and Sebastian-influenced pop from new Brazilian trio

'A Weekend with Jane' has been described as combining as the best elements of Sarah records with the Jesus and Mary Chain. It's not though. It's twee, very twee, and sounds like a reasonable version of Belle and Sebastian and a poorer version of Cinerama. It works well if you are still at school and holding hands for the first time. The title track has a Stuart Murdoch inspired vocal, but has a more traditional style band sound than Belle and Sebastian. 'Go Ahead', the next song, is faster and much more chunky in in its approach and delivery. 'Today' is very twee, and lovely, if you like that sort of thing. 'The Girl with Sunny Smile' has a rapid tempo and brings things to a speedy conclusion. They very much sound like they are from Surrey, which is odd considering that they are from Brazil. It ends with a phone call ring and a love song sang to a girl over the phone. Despite it over-forced naivety, this is an otherwise enjoyable and very, very sweet record.
