UNCONVINCED that electronic music can be soulful and touching? I prescribe one copy of this, Devonian Joseph Mount’s fourth album as Metronomy.
From the Northern Soul of Love Letters itself to the instrumental delight of Boy Racers, which had this father of four bouncing around the kitchen like a 17-year-old, it’s a thing of great joy throughout.
Fans of early Depeche Mode, Human League and latterly Hot Chip will find a lot to love, and if it leads newcomers to Metronomy’s back catalogue – especially the Mercury Prize-nominated The English Riviera – then so much the better.
Like this? Try these: Hot Chip, One Life Stand; LCD Soundsystem, Sound of Silver; Out Cold: Invasion of Love
