Knows No Kindness by Casper Skulls

Casper Skulls’ Knows No Kindness is a bit of a mixed bag, but if you’re into rock, folk, art pop and indie then you’re probably going to be very happy with the results. 

Certainly, at its best there’s plenty here that evokes the big stars of the 90s, and at times it sounds like an REM tribute in the best way possible. 

Ouija is great and it offers a certain spine chilling touch which makes it stand out from the pack and we can see ourselves coming back to it often. Witness stands out too. 

However, there’s no doubt that some of this material seems to blend into itself and deliver periods of monotony with not enough variation to demand replayability, Rose of Jericho, in particular, is a touch bland as is the song Knows No Kindness

That’s not to say that this is a bad album, just that it’s an uneven one. It shows a lot of promise for future releases and it’s certainly worth a spin or two for indie rock fans but we’re not sure how often they will want to come back to it in a couple of years’ time.
