Other than Spirit and the Spanic Boys, father-son duos are rare in rock & roll, which gives the U.K. experimental rockers Mystery Jets a leg up right away: lead singer and keyboardist Blaine Harrison is the son of lead guitarist Henry Harrison. It's handy that they have a hook like that for reviewers to latch onto, because it can be difficult for listeners to get their head around the band's full-length debut on its own terms. Making Dens is filled with quirky, interesting pop songs, but each seems to be in a different style from the others. For example, "You Can't Fool Me Dennis" sounds like an early, Barry Andrews-era XTC song as covered by Franz Ferdinand: the danceable stomp of the rhythm section keeps the spiraling tune from shooting off in a dozen different directions at once, but only just barely. Meanwhile, the first single "Zoo Time" has the cracked, disorienting post-punk-psychedelia vibe of a classic Teardrop Explodes single, but given an extremely contemporary electronic edge. Then there's the handful of songs that recall Kate Bush and/or Atom Heart Mother-era Pink Floyd. Honestly, none of it makes a lick of sense, but unlike, say, the Beta Band -- whose entire shtick was that the parts of their music never fit into a coherent whole -- there's a shapeliness to Making Dens that suggests the record was constructed from some inscrutable blueprint that's just naggingly out of reach. Repeated listens reveal the album's many quirky charms.
