Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Duke Spirit are a well-oiled garage-punk machine who rock hard and dark and tight like Nick Cave's Bad Seeds filtered through a shoegazer edge-softener. Led by the charismatic Liela Moss, whose voice bears a strong resemblance to that of Souxsie Sioux, the band showed real promise on their 2006 debut and have hit their stride on this 2008 release, combining pop hooks with soulful grooves and noisy, gnashing guitars.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.106) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "These Brits move with purpose from girl-group-inspired pop to fully loaded Jesus and Mary Chain-fried fuzz in remarkably short steps."

Entertainment Weekly (p.64) - "[T]he best tracks find the group focusing its fury into a quieter, more gripping form, allowing lead singer Liela Moss' bruised voice to play off spare piano and guitar arrangements." -- Grade: B+

Q (Magazine) (p.103) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "While the fuzzy blues rock guitars on 'You Really Wake Me Up' are harder, they are balanced by a newly developed sense of melody..."

Clash (magazine) (p.112) - "It lurches between frantic, brash rock heart-pounders and intimate soulfully sung heartbreakers....An outstanding effort..."

The Word (magazine) (p.97) - "This is rock music full of urgency, desire and tunes....Moss's voice is a more melodious, Scandinavian-tinged version of PJ Harvey."

URB (Magazine) (p.108) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The skuzzy guitar licks ebb and flow, making way for catchy hooks on songs such as 'My Sunken Treasure.' It's a rousing, confident journey for a band who has found their sea legs."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The hymnal opening of 'I Do Believe,' Liela's voice offering a sweet affirmation of faith, gives way to the seething blow-out of 'Send A Little Love Token.'"
