Album Review

The clipped guitars and easy '70s singalong feel of the title track of Make Up sum up the engagingly out of sync feel of Wiretree's latest, a kind of prelapsarian college rock before grunge broke big and transformed expectations. In that regard, the band continues as before, but it's definitely a case where a little can go a long way — or perhaps more fairly, that Wiretree scratch an itch that's decreased over the years. Not that this should stop anybody, of course, and with songs like "The Shore," another in the line of jaunty and jumping songs that have roots via Motown, the Smiths, the Strokes and beyond, the quartet can easily strike gold at its best. But Make Up's overall impact — a bit power pop, a bit Peter Perrett and the Only Ones, a bit energetic, but with a bit of melancholy — is a gilding of a lily rather than a remarkable new flower.

Customer Reviews

Great new album

I kind of chastisized the band on their previous album for sounding the same throughout, but this problem is fixed on this album. This album is fun! It has pace, it has surprises, nice riffs, and it's not mellow through out. Favorite song is "Tonight". Great release, thank you Wiretree.


Fantastic new release from a truly great band from Austin Texas. Melodic pop at it's best. The band also puts on a super live show.

Make Up, Wiretree
