British Sea Power Machineries Of Joy on LP

British Sea Power is a six-piece band variously originating from Cumbria, Yorkshire, Ealing and Shropshire, and currently based in East Sussex and on the Isle Of Skye. In 2013, ten years on from their debut album, British Sea Power are truly hitting their artistic stride. New album Machineries Of Joy, is a creative high, a superbly composed, multi-stylistic tour de force. Beautifully mechanized rhythms sit alongside wind-blasted Bronte-rock cinematics. Brain-bent garage thrash hurtles in.

Machineries Of Joy is British Sea Power’s fifth album – seventh including film soundtracks. The album was worked up in the Berwyn mountains in north Wales and recorded in Brighton with engineer Dan Swift, produced by British Sea Power. The album was mixed by Ken Thomas in rural Hampshire and in Castleford in West Yorkshire. Ken has previously worked with musicians including David Bowie, Wire, Queen, PiL and Sigur Ros.

“We’d like to think the album is warm and restorative,” says singer Yan. “Various things are touched on in the words – Franciscan monks, ketamine, French female bodybuilders turned erotic movie stars. The world often seems a mad, hysterical place at the moment. You can’t really be oblivious to that, but we’d like the record to be an antidote – a nice game of cards in pleasant company.”

“Their best record yet...a triumph of sophisticated rock engineering.” - Q Magazine 

“Mesmeric...consistently impressive." - MOJO
