Review Summary: My body got boring/ it was bound to happpen/ sex got stale/ that's the way it happens

Indoor Wind Chimes / Cottaging (aka Scotland) is easily the best of the Island series released thus far. Patrick Kindlon and gang embrace their post-punk influences heartily, with Kindlon dangerously close to singing actual notes. Scotland departs from the previous "banger/droner" structure employed on the two previous Island Singles and instead both songs exhibit similar agendas.

Indoor Wind Chimes features a galloping triple meter underneath Kindlon's musings. It's one of the Family's more outright catchy tracks, with Kindlon emulating real notes by yelling with varied intensity. The song eventually devolves into a chant of "No reason to feel any way about it." On previous Island Singles, the B-side was considerably weaker than the A-side. Here, this is not the case. Cottaging is one of Self Defense Family's best songs. Kindlon paints a picture of a fractured marriage further strained by the "cheat but no mistresses" clause. The repeated chorus and slow build underneath is likely the best moment the collective has crafted to date.

Scotland just might be my favorite 7" record of all time.
