Not a fan of this one but presumably it's not the actual first single. Hoping there's some good stuff on this album.

I quite like it, itís different sounding and I can imagine it working well within an album.

I found with album 7 that 6 Elbow albums was probably enough, but there were still a couple of really good singles from it. This is ok on first listen, but their songs do tend to be growers.

Yes I think I know what you mean. I actually liked quite a lot of the last album but very little felt like I really needed it after earlier albums.

Mind you there's not really many of their albums that I choose to listen to all the way through, I think it's only the Seldom Seen Kid that I'd choose to play these days.

Album is titled 'Giants of All Sizes' and out 11th October!



Though they might change that cover as Hudson Mohawke used the same stock image for his 2014 EP 'Chimes'!

'Empires' was released on Wednesday, liking this a lot more than 'Dexter & Sinister'!
