Underworld – I Exhale
New Underworld is not to be sniffed at. The debut single from new album Barbara Barbara. It’s not out until March but here’s a stream.
Really want this to be brilliant. Not sure it is. There are the Karl Hyde cut up vocals going on about “corrugated rhythms”. But he sounds a bit like a slowed up Mark E Smith if I’m honest. The tune is bassy and thunderous. But perhaps also a little ponderous. Will still want to listen to the album but do I expect too much?
Blurb: Underworld’s seventh album – Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future – is released on March 18th and is available to pre-order here http://underworld.tmstor.es The album’s seven tracks are fleet-footed, raw and spontaneous – a direct result of a strict working process in the studio that saw the band (Rick Smith and Karl Hyde) write entirely new music each time they met. That process has helped produce an album that easily stands alongside the recently reissued classics dubnobasswithmyheadman and Second Toughest In The Infants.
