Really enjoying London Grammar. Can’t imagine how they don’t blow up by the end of the calendar year, especially with a new album.
No chance I get through this summer reading.
And here’s the album, streaming via Spotify.
Disclosure’s debut is not only 2013’s best dance record so far, it’s also one of the most assured and confident debuts from any genre in recent memory. Dance music’s long had a fickle relationship with the album format, but Settle’s impeccable sequencing leads to a record that begs to be heard in its entirety.
The album released in the U.S. today, but the Guardian has been streaming it online since Friday. I’ve listened completely through roughly six times already, partly because it’s that’s addictive but it’s also that good. The Pitchfork review is spot on though; the album has remarkable pace and presence, especially for a debut album.
My favorite track was the final one, ‘Help me Lose My Mind’ featuring London Grammar.
