The gist Newcastle band finally release their long awaited debut, a trashy, swaggering introduction. The music The first things that hits you about this band is the dense sound that they produce. It's a noisy 1990s infused sound which is built around layers upon layers of guitar and, as much as I love that approach, there are potential pitfalls. You need the tunes and the melodies to back it up, and I can happily report that Baker Island have swerved those pitfalls and served up an exciting debut LP, chock full of neat ideas.
