Acts like Lush and Ride are the audio equivalent of confusion. Neither band seems to have a clue as to what it wants or where it's going, so both bands just sit there, arms folded, twin monuments to inertia.

That such stagnant sounds are now heralded as a "next big thing" is a gloomy testament to the once-invigorating concept of "new" music. There's nothing new with Britain's latest batch of imports. They're little more than lazy look-backs to better ideas.

But boring is as boring does, and the likes of Lush and Ride threaten to find an audience with the more passive elements of the increasingly alienated slacker-twentysomething set. Indeed, at this point, bands like Ride and Lush are about all that audience has this side of Nirvana.
