A musical kiss off to 00s.
Read More The best pop groups want to change the world. They want to leave an imprint that no one forgets, to do more than check out as a minor statistic in the Guinness Book of Hit Singles. They want to change the world of pop, and to engage with the politics of pop.
They've brought their lost sixties heroine, Evie Sands, over to play a show in Glasgow. They've sold out a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Emerging in the late nineties, they appeared to be both press and camera-shy, but also entirely self-contained; they seemed to have a secret, something built around books and films, and yet were happy to share the love, stopping just short of writing individual songs for their fans.
And their fans, naturally, became obsessive, formed their own bands, started their own loosely affiliated clubs, radio shows and websites.
A secret gang - who wouldn't want to be a part of it? But then again if you're a band who works with Trevor Horn, Carey Mulligan and Norah Jones, you're probably not content to lurk in the tiny shadow offered by a seven-inch single on Postcard.
And if you end up on the soundtrack to Adam Curtis's The Power Of Nightmares, or Todd Solondz's Storytelling, as well as Juno, then there's going to be more than a little grit and grain to your music than adjectives like "shy" and "fragile" might suggest.
They write precise and elegantly constructed melodies, and have never skimped with middle eights, bridges and codas: Stuart Murdoch's character studies and pen portraits deal in suburban dreams and anxieties, nudge-nudge innuendo and gentle mockery, real hope and real tragedies unfolding in offices, shops, libraries.
It's an uncommon talent that can manage this, and also be very funny. Murdoch's lyrics have very rarely been first person - at least, they haven't until now. This suggested a sharp step away from the tape-swapping, pen pal world they had been thought to inhabit of course they never had, not really.
The new album was recorded in Atlanta with Ben Allen Deerhunter, Washed Out, CeeLo Green and Animal Collective who convinced them to leave things more open-ended, less thoroughly thought-out in advance, leaving the producer and the musicians more space to be spontaneous. The result is playful, super-melodic, with lyrical nods to both their past and an optimistic future, and joyful jumps into new musical territories.
Let's have a quick poke around the previous eighteen years. Debut album Tigermilk was the product of a Stow College music business class that drummer Richard Colburn was taking; just 1, vinyl copies were pressed.
In spite of huge major label interest immortalised on the track Seymour Stein on their third album, The Boy With The Arab Strap they initially signed to the tiny Jeepster label, then later to Rough Trade and now have their first worldwide deal with Matador Records. The key to their appeal was a sense of community.
Their self-curated Bowlie festival would evolve into All Tomorrow's Parties; they became central to a nascent message board culture, and a US loop of labels and fanzines even writing a song about one, Chickfactor that adored their music, their stance, and their imagery. In Britain they famously upset the applecart in by winning the "Best Newcomers" BRIT award through the votes of their fans, faced accusations of vote rigging, and in the process have got the backs of the tabloids up sample Daily Record headline: So, clearly, they've been doing something right.Introduction.
