Sleaford Mods — Key Markets (mint green vinyl)

$29.99 (CAD) per unit


Special limited gatefold LP version on green vinyl. Independent stores only. Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods present third “proper” album, Key Markets. “Key Markets was a large supermarket bang in the centre of Grantham from the early 1970’s up until around 1980,” explains Jason Williamson. “My mum would take me there and I’d always have a large Coke in a plastic orange cup surrounded by varnished wood trimmings and big lamp shades with flowers on them. Beige bricks with bright yellow points of sale and large black foam letters surrounded you and this is why we called the album Key Markets. It’s the continuation of the day to day and how we see it, the un-incredible landscape.” “The album was recorded in various periods between summer 2014 through to October of that year. We worked fast as we normally do, the method was the same as the other albums and like the other two, the sound has naturally moved itself along. Key Markets is in places quite abstract but it still deals heavily with the disorientation of modern existence. It still touches on character assassination, the delusion of grandeur and the pointlessness of government politics. It’s a classic. Fuck em.” Housed in a gatefold sleeve designed by Steve Lippert; mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy. Everything else was done by Sleaford Mods. Sleaford Mods are Jason Williamson: words; Andrew Fearn: music. “Sleaford Mods sound like nothing else. Nothing like the rest of the desperate professional indie fodder hurling themselves from frying pan to flame. Hoping one day to get an Achilles heel on the Glastonbury career ladder… Sleaford Mods are a band who others will try to imitate. They will fail. Fuck ’em. Best band in the land. It’s that simple.” –The Quietus // “Some of the best music being made in England right now is happening from artists creating a lurid, livid portrait of a country that’s not right in its head… Nobody is doing it as explicitly as this duo… and frankly it’s a pleasure to for once hear music that’s made with such bile, such attack.” –NME
