Up in Flames [Bonus CD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
A one-man pop band, Dan Snaith distills everything that's breathtaking and slightly absurd about several extremist alternative pop movements of the '90s: the jangly white-noise of classic Too Pure/Beggars Banquet records (Pram, Stereolab); freewheeling pastoralia from Mercury Rev and Flaming Lips; and the warm '60s bubblegum of prime Elephant 6 pop music.
