Broken Record #36
Recently awarded "New Band of the Week" by The Guardian, Autobahn have just released their highly anticipated, and highly praised debut album Dissemble. That praise included a 10/10 review from John Robb on his Louder Than War site, whilst Drowned In Sound called it "Uncompromising from start to finish". The Leeds band have blatantly been taking cues from classic post punk and goth acts, but they also follow in the recent footsteps of bands like Interpol and The Horrors, who manage to present dark, dark themes in a way that's supremely dance-able. The band are hitting the road this month (tour dates below), so it would probably be wise to catch them whilst you can still see them in decent/"intimate" venues. Until then, take some tips from their frontman Craig Johnson, who guides us through his record collection in the latest of our Broken Record features.
