Right from the "kerching" of the cash register and the monstrous bass line that opens For A Lark, you know that King Champion Sounds aren't going to be slipping into comfortable mid-career predictability with their fourth studio album. An Anglo/Dutch band featuring members of The Ex, The Common Cold and Year of Birds, their previous output has constantly pushed the boundaries of what can be achieved by a rock band in the modern era. Previously they've mixed punk with jazz and ambience and produced one of the best albums of 2016 with their double LP To Awake In That Heaven Of Freedom.

The gist Ajay Saggar and co. return with a third album which stretches their boundaries (and the physical capacity of the vinyl format) The music Euro art-punks King Champion Sounds have unleashed a 19 track behemoth (spit over two beautifully packaged 12" records) which plays like an eccentric, obscure compilation album. Maybe its an album aimed at the short attention span of the modern MP3 listener, or maybe its just the sound of a restless talent who enjoys a bit of genre flipping.
