Future Of The Left - Bread, Cheese, Bow And Arrow

The other day we declared Jetplane Landing's Don't Try, out this week, might be the best rock album emerging from the British Isles this year so far. Those last two words were it turns out (if kind of expectedly so) advisably used. FOTL's fourth album How To Stop Your Brain In An Accident is out on 21st October and judging by the first offering it's setting out with its industrial sledgehammer to crack every single definition of the word 'nut'. As taut, staccato guitars get set to stun Andy Falkous is possessed, howling and hissing lturns of phrase twisted back around themselves and coming out the other end all obtuse, leading towards a thunderous, righteous ending. The usual, then, but somehow far more so.
