"Make no mistake, this is no happy ride. This is closer to Cohen's "Songs of Love and Hate" or a Low album than it is to anything you're likely to hear on contemporary radio. Wolf Tickets seem to be committed to making albums Beatles-style, where each song is different from the last. And yet, through dusty pianos and plucked nylon strings, you begin to realise that this album, which opens and closes with the same sound, inhabits those crisp moments of bruised clarity just before dawn. And even when it fails, with the suicide circus of some songs, it fails with an intensity which many indie artists would struggle to match. This is an album which doesn't deserve to be relegated to an mp3 playlist; if anything, it needs to be played loudly from hissy tapes. It needs to be blared away into the indifferent silence if only to show that - yes - even after wars and devastation and smeared lipstick, music can still be played like this. Close your eyes and beam its bittersweetness straight into your soul!"
"Milk Moon", the debut CD by Wolf Tickets, contains songs recorded in a 6th floor apartment overlooking the river. There are 18 tracks, one of them 13 minutes long (drastically cut short from the original 16). The album has a happy ending and remarkably few guitar solos.
It comes in the form of a CD-R lovingly housed in hand printed 18pt 100% recycled chip board cases. The package also contains a Words and Explanations sheet on A4 original Crown Mill 100g cream laid paper, as well as further Notes on regular paper cut with a Corsican knife.
