From the euphoric air-drumming delirium of 1,2,3’s ‘Going Away Party’ right through to the stunning slow build and release of Elbow’s take on Peter Gabriel’s ‘Mercy Street’, the second half of this week’s New Noise is a bit like the R11 bus I used to get to college: it takes about 90 minutes, goes right out around the houses and welcomes a mixed bag of strange characters on the way. Thankfully, this ride doesn’t include any B.O-ridden no-marks throwing shite at elderly members of the public.
With bits of house, hardcore, experimental pop, friendly folk, electronica, psych, 19-piece Samba hip hop brass and, um, Liars, there’s a lot here for you to love, hate, and grow to love.
