Starlings  performed by  Elbow  (2007)
Composed by Elbow
From: England
Recommended by komodo [profile] on Wednesday 10th September 2008

Recommended to congratulate them on winning the Mercury prize this year. Irrelevant I know, but you can't help feeling pleased for them - nice guys sometimes win!

This is the opening track from the winning album, and whilst it ticks the "epic" and "melancholy" boxes often associated with Elbow, it is also a startling track, with it's hypnotic, careworn sound punctuated by jagged blasts of brass. Then there's Garvey's bruised but beautiful voice. A cracking start to a cracking album.

Well done lads!

from The Seldom Seen Kid (Polydor B0013F2M52)
