About this item
Ninja Tune bring us the first new material from The Cinematic Orchestra in three years via a limited vinyl release of the Roots Manuva collaboration "A Caged Bird / Imitations Of Life". Claps and tambourines bring us into the room, where the downbeat ensemble gently tease out a skeletal fusion of thoughtful piano, solid percussion and moody electronics, made whole with Roots Manuva's philosophical flow and urgent strings. It's clear by now though that TCO don't trade in the linear, and soon enough the track explodes into syncopated drums, twinkling electronics and a drifting chorus, tugging every heartstring at once. Available on a limited vinyl with an instrumental and acapella on the flip, this is a welcome return for the electronic legends.
