Portland's Col­late have nev­er been a group to push the bound­aries of their own genre ex­act­ly, but that doesn't mean there's not plen­ty of fun to be had any­ways with their com­par­a­tive­ly straight­for­ward and sim­plis­tic mix­ture lo­cat­ed some­where in­be­tween the more funky end of the no wave spec­trum and Gang Of Four-es­qie dance-/post punk grooves. It's a record that kin­da sneaks up on you with much of its strongest ma­te­r­i­al hid­den away in the sec­ond half.
