Cazals, 'What of Our Future' (Kitsune/The Hours/Fontana)

5
What of Our Future
Critical Mass
Label: Kitsune/The Hours/Fontana

by Jon Young

Cazals' debut zips by like the greatest-hits set of a snappy '80s new-wave band, as if the Brit quintet were afraid of overstaying their welcome. Wrapped in bright guitars and slick synths, every track boasts an arresting touch -- a rude bass line here, a cool vocoder there -- as stylishly hoarse singer Phil Bush struggles to convey a depth of feeling the glib material can't support. Tellingly, he's most convincing on the spirited cover of Spandau Ballet's "To Cut a Long Story Short."
