Brit kings get off the super pop highway
British heroes Supergrass have taken a left-hand turn. Indeed, recent band callaborations - Gaz Coombes and Mick Quinn with voodoo blues man Dr.John, and Danny Goffey helping out indie experimentalists Lodger - sees the trio checking out the larger scheme of things. Their 1995 diamond debut, I Should Coco, was all about fired-up fuzz and knockabout tales, while this, their third album, brings on weirdness and (gulp!) maturity. The album opener "Moving", is a rollicking number possessed by a groovy organ; "Shootover Hill" paints wasted blues on the back porch while "Eon" opens Supergrass to psychedelic swirls and angelic harmonies. As outstanding as it is surprising.
4/5 - Excellent
