Sheer Mag's full-length debut Need to Feel Your Love is one of the only releases of recent times that manages to sound like a mix of a classic '70s rock, power pop and obscure English DIY. Everything sounds scrappy, fuzzy and scuzzy and it's all the better for it. The riff packed guitar work and fuzzed female vocals sit perfectly together whilst the crude rhythms just add bounce. Think of the power pop delight of Protex, the lo-fi nature of The Seize, the riffs of Thin Lizzy and the powerful female vocals of Suzi Quatro. It shouldn't work but it does. It really does!
