I know that I’m hardly breaking new ground by posting this, but I’ve been listening to the new album by Elbow on rotation for about a week now, and simply can’t get the refrain from Lippy Kids, which gives the album its name, out of my head. It’s as plaintively beautiful as Oasis’ classic D’Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman?
It’s not radical, nor outrageous, nor genre-defining, nor anything that you wouldn’t expect from Elbow. It’s just totally, and utterly, fantastically lovely.
