About this item

Hugely anticipated debut from Black Country, New Road. The latest band to emerge from the burgeoning and famed Brixton Windmill scene, which also fostered the rise of contemporaries, black midi, Squid, Fat White Family and Shame.

The six tracks here are a glorious squall of post-rock, jazz and Jewish folk. Saxophone blasts battle for attention with post-rock guitars reminiscent of Slint. The see sawing violin's of traditional Klezmer music weave in and out and Isaac's occasional, wayward narratives top things off. 

An inventive, vibrant debut, that's definitely an early contender for album of the year charts.
