Sally Crewe & The Sudden Moves Your Nearest Exit May Be Behind You
Somehow, Sally Crewe & the Sudden Moves have managed to stay relatively unknown even after a couple of really impressive albums and a series of high profile tours opening for the likes of the Wedding Present and Spoon. That does mean, however, that potentially an increasing number of people are beginning to hear their uncluttered, guitar-driven music, which has more than a passing resemblance to the angular pop of Girls Can Tell-era Spoon. Your Nearest Exit May Be Behind You isn't really anything new for the band, yet when it's been working so well there's very little need to change. Crewe's obsessions from her previous albums are still there - cars and boys - and her approach is still remarkably business-like, with a minimal amount of frills added to the music. None of the songs overstay their welcome, and the combination of Crewe's lyrics and delivery is enough to make this well worth seeking out. (8-Track Mind)
