The Big Pink – Velvet
Pretty moody, by the standards of stuff I usually talk about on here. Moody b/w video, moody vocals, generally very moody indeed. But it’s got a kind of hooky momentum about it, that draws you along, building to the sort of climax last seen on a Spiritualized album circa 1997. Brought to you by some guy who apparently unleashed Klaxons and Crystal Castles on the world, this is pretty far from nu-rave and all the better for it. Out 20th April on 4AD.
