Standard LP is coloured vinyl LP *Mustard Yellow(, Indie store only coloured vinyl LPX is Blue with Orange splatters. Gatefold CD. Martha return with their second album. Produced again by MJ from Hookworms, the album explores the difficulties in staying political, staying passionate and staying punk over the course of eleven expertly crafted pop songs.. Taking inspiration from such likely and unlikely sources as The Replacements, Heart, Billy Bragg, Thin Lizzy, Cheap Trick, The Go/Gos and Radiator Hospital, the album bursts into life with "Christine", "a love song filtered through the messiness of anxiety and night terror" and is followed by the rous/ing "Chekhov-s Hangnail". The catchy "Precarious *The Supermarket Song(" finds romance in the washing powder aisle, while "Goldman's Detective Agency" shows the band's playful side. Nearly every song here is a potential single, from the infectious "Do Whatever" and "11>45, Legless In Brandon" to outsider anthem "The Awkward Ones" and the Billy Bragg & Coronation Street/referencing "Curly and Raquel". The album concludes with "St Paul-s *Westerberg Comprehensive(", a song about being caught up in the toxic culture of a Catholic comprehensive school.
