Most recent 50s revivalists have been meticulous in recreating the vintage sound of their heroes. Not young New Zealander Willy Moon, who combines rootsy rock'n'roll with the production dazzle of 00s hip-hop and dance music, in a way that dares you to call it horrible things like rockabilly dubstep. Don't wince, his debut works far better than it should. Nothing quite surpasses the way breakout single I Wanna Be Your Man dive-bombs his mating-call holler with fidgeting beats, twanging guitars and fairground synths, but there's plenty of the same wit and invention elsewhere, not least on the gothic cabaret of Working for the Company.
