Following their 2012 mini-album on Jigsaw and hot on the heels of a 7" on Dufflecoat Records, Manchester's Amida have given us a full-length (finally!), with 13 songs in under half an hour. The band has managed to follow-up on the promise that their previous releases have made, with a collection of songs that are as biting as they are melodic. Sounding like a mix between the Wolfhounds, the Monochrome Set and even a little Big Flame (and similarly noisy bands on the "other" side of C86), the speedy/jangly guitars seem to be fighting the propelling bass guitar for control, giving us some very compelling music in the process!

RIYL: the Wolfhounds, Monochrome Set, acerbic jangle-pop.
