El Goodo 'Coyote' LP
El Goodo's second harmony-drenched album at last gets a physical release. Based in South Wales, the band recorded Coyote in their own studio before going on to mix it with Cian Ciaran from Super Furry Animals at the controls. Indeed El Goodo (named after the classic Big Star tune) first came to the public's attention when SFA released their self-titled debut on the Placid Casual label. Highlights from the album include the single 'I Saw Her Today' with its swirling keyboards, galloping rhythms, mariachi horns and frequent nods to Morricone; and the baroque pop of 'Don't Worry Marie', a short and sweet combination of Left Banke hooks and Teenage Fanclub melodies. Throughout the album there are further signs of influences from the Beach Boys to West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band and Love all recorded with a zeal only recently achieved by the Coral.
