The Only Thing I Ever Wanted, marks a change of approach. ''I think this new record's got a bit more of an 'in the house' atmosphere, than the previous one'', Carim ventures. ''Whenever we make a new track it's always a bit of an experiment, some of them fall apart after five minutes, others survive for an hour in the incubator, but most of them make it through''. ''A lot of the new songs are quite joyful but quite sad simultaneously,'' Galia adds. ''Songs can be pretty one-dimensional - 'we've broken up' or 'I'm so in love' - but life's not really like that.

When we were making the new album my cat, Puss Puss died, I came to live in King's Cross, I fell in love, got engaged, got unengaged, had the landlord threatening to evict us at any moment and so on...'' Emotional ambiguity and Damocles-like landlords notwithstanding, The Only Thing I Ever Wanted is surely Psapp's finest chapter to date. It's brimful of undeniable pop hooks, gorgeous, mosaic-like arrangement details and looks set to transport Psapp to new, dizzying heights. Whats more, it's surely the most poignant songwriting ever to be underscored by toy animals and kitchen utensils.
