messing with our heads in the best possible way, the Leeds band's 3rd full-length marks anything but a "micro" shift - this is a seismic shift in their sound, dynamic, songwriting & production - but one that seriously kicks ass & delivers a euphoric catharsis.

With all the ferocious energy, intricate musicianship & bruised but beautiful song-craft of the previous releases, the album is formed out of loops, modular synthesizer sequences, drum machines & homemade samples, which were jammed around & layered until the songs began to emerge. Coming out of the blocks with 'Negative Space', a spectacular Arcade Fire-esque builder that tells us MJ & co are ready to go for it in a big way this time, this is a radiant & immersive record, teeming with light but still heavy & forceful. Mining the legacy of Brit-Pop, with a bubbling Spiritualized & Primal Scream undercurrent, it's all rooted with that reliable motorik beat throughout. A tour de force for fans of everyone from LCD Soundsystem to Neu! to Supergrass.
