English band Basement blends the styles of noise rock and punk in a fashion that may sound familiar upon first listen, but with further inspection, stands out upon a plethora of other bands trying similar things. This is due to the diversity in their sound, which on this record ranges from grunge rock, to alternative, to acoustic and back again. They even feature a cover of The Cardigans “My Favourite Game”, which is one of the best cuts on the album. This variety keeps the project interesting and shows Basement is able to continue evolving their sound with each record they release.
