Sitting somewhere in-between the worlds of indie and electronica, Lincoln based Iodo fuse electronic beats and synth sounds with jangly guitar parts and slurred vocals, recalling (without being derivative of) later-day Radiohead. Their willingness to experiment is admirable – there’s real substance here, especially on second track “language is cumbersome”, which starts with a gothic synth part over finger-picked guitar before breaking into a post-punk rock out, all over Boards of Canada-esque stuttering electronic beats. “Stainless Steel mouse” is similarly eclectic, frantic vocals pinning down atmospheric bleepery. If there’s any criticism it’s that the vocals could do with a bit of refining – you get the feeling they’re deliberately understated to make room for the music, but at the same time it means they can get a bit monotonous in places. Essentially though, this four track E.P. is packed full of ideas and creativity. Title track “Note to self” is the highlight; driven by a simple bass line, it’s as catchy as it is intelligent and proves that whilst Iodo are mostly an experimental project, they can also come up with some great melodies.
