It’s been six years since the Notwist‘s last outing, but the time off seems to have done the band good. “Good Lies,” from forthcoming May Domino Records release The Devil, You + Me, is as good as any of Neon Golden’s considerable highlights. That’s probably because it’s more of the same — slick, soundtrack-ready guitar ‘n electro Radiohead-lite — but I’m not one to look a gift horse in the influences.

(For the record, I bought Neon Golden in 2002 on the strength of a Pitchfork 9.2 and promptly regretted it, but at least that was back when a 9.2 still meant something. Ah, the glory days…)
