Album: Milk Maid, Mostly No (Fat Cat)

Milk Maid are one of two lactically named bands causing ripples right now (the other being The Milk).

Led by Martin Cohen, formerly of Manc neo-grungers Nine Black Alps, Milk Maid justify the fuss with bold, euphoric opener "Dopamine", but it isn't long before their second album goes sour, settling into a pattern of either doctrinaire psych-rock or alt-country which recalls the Dandy Warhols in their more meandering moods. It's almost as if Cohen loses his bottle.
