One More Grain is a new very good sounding band from UK.They released their debut LP Pigeon English a few days ago and after Daniel's kind request we are reviewing it here.
Here's what the press wrote:
"One More Grain are a strange bunch" - The Guardian. "So special....fantastic and utterly unmissable" - Whisperin & Hollerin. "This is psychogeography with trumpets and sumptuous locked down grooves... a ramble through the dales with accompaniment courtesy of New Orleans and Detroit." - PlayLouder. "Great English talent...4/5" - The Sunday Times on Pigeon English. "Weird yet wonderful" - Drowned in Sound. "Go. Seek. Buy. This record feels like the start of something special" - Make Noise and Dance. "Pigeon English is the work of a unique mind... Pere Ubu and Can for a new generation" - 4/5 - The Stool Pigeon .
To me it sounds like twisted droney exotica jazz,meets Pere Ubu meets The Fall (is Daniel identical twin brother of Mark E. Smith????????).Anyway,that's my opinion from the 4 songs i've heard,and i think it's worth to be very recommended!
Go here to hear for yourselves.
Mutant Sounds recommends it as one of the best gems of 2007 ,so far.
