#654: Thumpers - Whipper & Glazed

With most tracks on Thumpers’ debut album ‘Galore’ clocking in at roughly the four-minute mark, it’s a bit of a shock that the average length track on ‘Whipped and Glazed’, their second album, comes in closer to nine. That’s not the only difference. Where ‘Galore’ came across as universally optimistic, floating on warm swells of upbeat instrumentation, ‘Whipped and Glazed’ feels somewhat torn.

*Please note: This review was of a demo version of the record accidentally serviced by the bands PR and isn't an accurate reflection of the finished album.
