A few years ago I heard the first Last Shadow Puppets album and could not stop playing it ! Well they are back again with a softer more contained album which I can't stop playing again !
TLSP are the magical combo of Alex Turner and Miles Kane with producer and drummer James Ford, and Zach Dawes.
I have loved Elbow since I first heard their debut album and with every new recording they just keep getting better and better.

If you are a jazz lover then I am sure you have stumbled across the wide ECM label and cast of world class musicians all produced by Manfred Eicher. Non-Fiction is a 1978 ECM release featuring the inventive piano work of Steve Kuhn wig support by bass of Harvie Swartz, the great drumming of Bob Moses and sax, flute of Steve Slagle
I think the cover of the album is very fitting and may be the best descriptor of the music actually. A very bright album that seems to cut thru the wind like a comb! Crazy eh !
This album is also quite a workout but never gets too lost and carries themes that you will follow and pull put as the album unfolds. Very progressive jazz influenced with top musicianship and sound quality. Highlight for me is the 12 min tune "Alias Dash Grapey" which is an entire musical journey on its own !
Beautiful music for your ears
