Having taken electro pop nihilism some distance past its logical conclusion on their unnecessary Evil Heat album – a bored rehashing of the landmark XTMR, with less tunes and more vowels. – the Scream throw a swerve ball with ‘Country Girl’, a lazy slice of Stone-derived country pop. It’s a tune with the air of something cobbled together from a garage sale yet, all the same, scrubs up a treat. You could bring it home to your mum.
