Glue is pretty good but not enough to make me want to invest in their other stuff.

I really like Aura and will almost certainly get this album tomorrow... Lewww introduced me to them when he recommended Poly Pineapple and I've liked most of the things released since then. wub.gif

Mixmag have placed this as their #1 album of 2017!

QUOTE
“We wanted to step out of our comfort zone,” says Bicep’s Andy of the Belfast duo’s debut LP. “Obviously, it’s not an album full of club tunes. Before we finished it, I worried that it was too chilled.” He needn’t have. How many DJ/producer duo’s debut albums make the UK Top 20 these days? Especially while resolutely refusing to rest on past laurels or sneak in their well-known anthems (for example ‘Just’) at the very end? The fact that ‘Bicep’ sounded simultaneously classic and undeniably contemporary was its secret weapon: that, and how it got better with every repeat play. “We’ve done eight years of releasing 12”s and had established our name already,” reasons Matt “so it wasn’t like we were a new act. We wanted to make a statement, one digestible piece of work, and push forward. It’s not made for the charts.” And yet the campaign ensured that it was Ninja Tune’s most successful electronic project in year, and its success has been complemented perfectly by Bicep’s new live show which has been knocking festivals dead all over: the musical muscles don’t stop flexing in this outfit. “It’s been our busiest year by a mile,” they nod. “We’ve been doing so much every single day – and the new live show means we need to be at the airport four hours earlier!”

But it’s not just the chart position that shows how much the album has crossed over; new fans have appeared in the most unexpected places. “Elton John played one of our tracks on his ‘Rocket Man’ radio show on Beats 1. That was definitely the weirdest one.” Beyond Elton, everyone from Annie Mac to Sasha and Sven have supported the album. “It fits with the modern crowd and struck a chord with the older crew. The whole year has seen the biggest change in terms of how we’ve been operating. It’s been crazy!” Topped off by the Mixmag’s Album Of The Year award? “A huge thank you, Mixmag, for all your support! We’re over the moon.” Ninja tune co-founder Jon More of Coldcut is also a happy man. “It’s a real honour,” he says, “[and it’s]amazing when our faith in a record – sometimes against the grain – plays out.”

Definitely one of my favourite albums of the year, Glue in particular is outstanding but the whole album is decent from beginning to end.

Yeah I thought Orca was the obvious choice too but there's not a single track I don't like so I don't mind really, just glad we've got another single.

12" of Opal is out on April 27th with B-side 'Helix' included
