After two stellar fuzz-pop releases by two amazing artists — The Pains of Being Pure At Heart and Liechtenstien — I was expecting more of the same from the self-titled LP by Bricolage. However, expectations were fallacious; Bricolage has more in common with label mates The Lodger than the aforementioned duo. “Bayonets” is the opening track off Bricolage and while it lacks the fuzz, it more than makes up in highly upbeat Euro-sounding pop.
More specifically, Bricolage hails from Glasgow and their sound can not only be likened to that of labelmates The Lodger, but also 80s underground pop greats like Orange Juice and The Pastels. Bricolage’s self-titled LP is out now on Slumberland Records.
