If you like the likes of Galaxie 500 – or anything Dean Warham related you should love this. its a very low key affair with Guylaine singing, very lovely mind you, in French on a couple tracks, and even though i have zero idea what she’s singing that doesnt take away from my enjoyment. definitely of my favorite records of 2012.
Says Buzzbands LA:
The music of the L.A. trio Détective sounds as if it could have come from dusty tapes found in the 4AD archive... Their second EP in as many months, “Basket of Masks,” trades in coy pop melodies, gritty post-punk guitar riffs and proggy krautrock instrumentals. Their sparse, lo-fi structures don’t sacrifice texture, though; Vivarat and Greer have found the delicate balance between sweet and off-kilter that recall Stereolab and some Morr Music luminaries.
Says Magnet Magazine:
The very balmy, easygoing sound of Détective matches perfectly with the late-spring/early-summer weather we feel when we open up our windows.
