Felix - Oh Holy Molar

The somewhat chilled musical vehicle for songstress Lucinda Chua, Felix return with their new LP Oh Holy Molar, the trio's second offering of gentle pickings. Stories forged on London's streets are played out by Lucinda's harmonious voice over a soporific musical backdrop, something between acoustic indie and current bandwagon nu-folk. The thirteen tunes are all rather twee and pleasant but lack any real variation, meaning that the album very quickly descends into one long peaceful - but decidedly monotonous - daze.

In all honesty, Oh Holy Molar is a dull record when played as a whole piece, the repetitiveness of the tracks and the formula killing any joy to be found in the playful and sweet tunes. On each return, the early songs remind us that the building blocks Felix work with are not at fault (playful guitars, lovely vocals), but that sense of boredom and frustration never fails to raise its ugly head before the halfway mark, and the final fade out can't then come quick enough.
