The wheel is most assuredly not reinvented on Cotillon’s self-titled record, but it’s certainly not damaged.
Imagine if a slightly lower-fi version of The Thermals’ melodies and vocalization and Jack White’s off-kilter ambitions took a couple hits of opium before performing. The crazy thing is, sometimes it works.
Occasionally falling prey to tired sound structure, but shooting for the moon, it’s definitely worth a go-around.
