about

There are choruses and smart words and guitar chords and harmonies and jangling notes and irreverence and a pure love for music that will lift you through the Great Times as well as The Bad. Not an album for people who like to revel in gloom. "Modern Museums" is immaculate in a bittersweet, madcap, loud petulant sort of way. I want to marry it and have it's children. --Careless Talk Costs Lives

This one's smart, noisy, chunky postpunk art-pop, snotty as hell and whipping its nine songs in at a snappy 25 minutes. I didn't know I had such an appetite for sly, smart arsed songs about art, pop and cat torture. If I can't work out whether to refer to this as bug-eyed or steely-eyed, that's the achievement of Modern Museums. --Chickfactor

Fast, breezy three-chord rock songs never really go out of style, and Sportique, a band made of folks who've been doing this since the earliest days of punk, is living proof that two-minute songs with driving guitars and snotty sing-along choruses are still about as cool as it gets. --Splendid
