Alpha is the aptly titled inaugural release from Sheffield's bizarrely named Awooga, and is the perfect introduction to their dark yet humorous world. Occupying a place somewhere between Deftones, Tool and more old school sounds like Swervedriver or even Warrior Soul, they waste no time in tearing the hifi the proverbial new one. The dark heart of the band is captured in the crystalline and haunting song Thief - a perfect and thorned hymn to unrequited love.
