Wire - Joust & Jostle

Seems very wrong that Wire are releasing a self-titled album, but here we all are. Out April 20th, their thirteenth studio album was almost entirely previewed on the road as with much of their earlier albums, the rest of the tracks brought in afresh by Colin Newman and reacted to in the studio spontaneously. Again much like "classic" Wire, much as the band would hate that term, it careers along with a rhythmic charge and half-hidden acidity, and is all done not much over two minutes in.
