This is a bright but haunted age: new British Sea Power EP

In an attempt to post more frequently, here’s a brief plug for the new British Sea Power EP, titled: Krankenhaus? Yes, with the question mark. It includes the fantastic ‘Atom’, which you can download for nowt from the band site (and seeing as this is is Radiohead day – yawn) and four other tracks for a great big nearly 25 minutes of stuff. Including ‘The Pelican’ which I think we heard at Fandango and which goes on for nine minutes. Bells, guitars, shouting, nonsense, off-putting found sounds. It has ‘live favourite’ written through it like a stick of rock and it should be the penultimate track on the next album. It’s not going to be, apparently, so I look forward to hearing whatever is the next ‘Lately’ or ‘Land Beyond’. On a promise!

Available now from your favourite online record grocer. Buy it and strike a blow for independent labels whose bands don’t play to stadiums full of dimwits (and therefore can give whole albums away for nothing).

  1. Ignoring certain parts of that review, but look forward to hearing the new BSP.
