Tough Love is AOTW over at The Irish Times

ALBUM OF THE WEEK The Jimmy Cake – Tough Love

“The Jimmys are among the longest-standing alternative groups in Ireland but they’re not prolific by any stretch of the imagination. Their output is considered and toiled over, their personnel changes frequently and their predilections morph. Their fifth album Master took seven years to arrive and marked a change in tone with elongated post-rock and kraut electronics. Tough Love arriving two years later, tears down their sound and is more focused on the process of building it all back up again. At 40 minutes and one track, Tough Love grows from synth atmospherics to a full-pelt psychedelic chase, to a dirge of noise and a piling lament of sonic layers” – Niall Byrne

” it’s another remarkable achievement from a band still at the peak of their powers after a decade and a half” – The Thin Air

“Cinematic, sometimes sinister & a little unhinged, it’s a dazzling genre straddling affair performed by a band as rock solid as Optimus Prime’s couch” – Hot Press
