Pat Mahoney and Dennis McNany's Museum of Love project has always been an enticing proposition. The duo's two singles to date, "Down South" and "Monotronic", tickled the fancy of all those with a penchant for wide-eyed, Balearic-leaning pop - all soft-focus electronics, shuffling rhythms and yearning vocals. This much-discussed debut album continues in a similar vein - albeit with a little more grittiness in places - with Mahoney doing his best Bryan Ferry impression over McNany's warm, loose and melodious production. It's a formula that guarantees great results, from the low-slung, disco-influenced shuffle of the trumpet-laden "The Who's Who Of Who Cares", to the classic DFA swagger of the raucous rock-out "The Large Glass".
