Yeti Love – ‘Yeti Love’ [Review]
When an album brings to mind Boy Hits Car (one of my favourite bands of all time) and Spotlight Cannibal (one of my favourite bands of right now), it’s a winner in my eyes. On this, their eponymous debut album, Yeti Love are winning at music, and doing it in style.
Whatever these guys turn their hand to, it comes off perfectly. Yeti Love really have the acoustic-music Midas touch: Whether evoking the spirit of Bob Dylan on Saints Of White Lines; getting political on opener Old Man; flirting with intriguing instrumentation and Maynard James Keenan’s rhythmic flair on Ollos Do Sol; stealing a vocal harmony approach from Soundgarden-era Chris Cornell for Lonely Road; or experimenting with underwater melancholy on Switchblade Angel, it’s all more than good. It’s fucking great – an absolute belter of a long-player – and a must-hear album for those who like passion in one ear, and peace in the other.
