Highly anticipated 2007 debut album from the Britpop trio. What?s The Time Mr. Wolf? is a collection of tracks written and recorded over an 18-month period between London and LA. The Noisettes made a deliberate decision to keep their music stripped down and performance based. The songs are a reflection of their different musical moods and influences which are constantly changing and morphing. Rolling Stone tipped them in their coveted ?Top 10 for 2007? list. Plus they have also just finished a mammoth tour with the mighty Muse after being hand-picked as main to be main support on their recent UK and European dates. The Noisettes have been described by the NME as ?One of rock n roll?s best kept secrets? and by The Guardian as ?Britain?s best live band?. 10 tracks.

"So I was at my local record store and I was intrigued by the Billie Holliday and Yeah Yeah Yeahs reference. The album was cheap enough to take a chance on and I'm very glad that I did. There are so many musical styles and theories going on in this album but they all equate to a rockin' good time! Imagine a band that can rock like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs but with a front woman who has a great voice to boot. This is a solid album from beginning to end, not one bad song, and I can't say enough good things about it."

"The noisettes are a conceptual approach to sound that escapes the confines of pop music. They defy any single paradigm or set of assumptions, instead drawing upon multiple theories, styles, and ideas to gain complementary insights, leading us into a new dimension of sounds and thrills. To put it plainly, which is impossible with this trio - they rock!

The Noisettes debut is a breath of fresh air in the music market place. Only a trio, yet they can create a wild wall of discordant thrash in one moment and then be as tender and gentle as a baby in the next, with the vocals to match. In this respect, they remind me somewhat of Nirvana. Style wise, they've got the chops to do simple rock n roll like Don't Give Up through to the breathtaking musical gymnastics of Mind the Gap (jazz, blues, heavy rock, punk...). Highly recommended.
A great debut album and I'm looking forward to the next one having a little more consistency in the songwriting (not that there's a filler on this one) and maybe stronger production, especially to make the most of Shingai Shoniwa's truly fantastic voice.
