Album Review: Pulled Apart By Horses - Tough Love (Deluxe Edition)

imageReading a review for 'Tough Love', the second album by Leeds noiseniks Pulled Apart By Horses, may seem like deja vu for a few of you, given that this record already came out this year, back in January. Just eleven months later, it’s been deemed worthy of a re-release by label Transgressive, as a “deluxe edition” with an extra disc of demos, B-sides and live tracks. Why so soon after release is this coming out again?, I hear you cry. Well, the band may have felt there was so much unreleased gold that wasn’t included the first time, but with a rather shoddy cover of Nirvana’s 'Tourette's included, that’s rather doubtful. Perhaps a re-release in December may bring it back into the forefront of critics’ thoughts? Perhaps, albums released earlier in the year tend not to do so well in end-of-year lists, but if the band have enough confidence in this album, they wouldn’t deem it so forgettable. Or perhaps, in the wake of a recently cancelled tour of venues encompassing the likes of the 2,500 capacity HMV Kentish Town Forum, they may require some supplemental income? One would never dare to be so cynical…

Whatever the reasons may be for this “deluxe edition”, Pulled Apart By Horses remain a shining beacon amongst a greying, homogenous slagheap of UK indie rock bands. Rough, ready and raucous, this release builds on the fine groundwork laid down on 2010’s self-titled album, which was essentially a compilation of previously released tracks. Lead single and first track ‘V.E.N.O.M.’ bursts out of the traps wildly, snarling, growling and biting with an energy seen in the very best punk and grunge bands, but with a vibrant undercurrent of groove and an ear for melody. These songs sound far more full-bodied than ever before - where the band have traditionally been at their greatest in the live arena, this proves they have the chops in the studio to back it up. Fuelled by the nous of producer Gil Norton, whose previous credits include Foo Fighters and Pixies, ‘Tough Love’ represents a real body of work, rather than the rushed début.
