When you listen to Home Is Where It Hurts, you'll immediately understand why Chicago-based Aesthetics decided to license it for US release. Hell, I'd have done it if they hadn't. It's really quite brilliant, in an understated and very much of-the-moment fashion. All the current indie-rock hot-buttons are pressed: densely-textured pop ("Cold fire woods of western lanes" and the title track), Mogwai-style instrumental catharsis ("The Fact that You Failed"), semi-electronic Kid A glitch-pop ("The World Touches Too Hard") and jazzy moodiness ("It's Been a Long Time Since I Was Last Here") are present and accounted for. Hood pulls all of this off quite casually, without sounding derivative; my comparisons are, I'll confess, a little forced, as Hood never sound like they're trying to be another group. There's a definite sheen of subtlety here -- the disc doesn't demand attention, but it deserves it. Nothing here disappoints.
