Our beloved Brian unleashes another breakneck masterpiece of avant garde synth-pop hysteria for us, replete with off-the-wall, split-personality bangers.

Fired by his ongoing battle with mental illness, this is the final, and finest, chapter of what Christinzio calls his “Manchester Trilogy”, with his past three albums all having been created after the native Philadelphian moved to Manchester. Like 'Deportation Blues', 'Shortly After Takeoff' spans singer-songwriter classicism, gnarly synth-pop and ‘50s rock’n’roll, with Christinzio’s similarly distinctive, flexible vocal carrying a fearless approach to lyrical introspection, but the new album is a major leap forward in songwriting sophistication and lyrical communication. For fans of the dizziest eccentricities of john grant, ezra furman & field music.

"a spellbinding & utterly wonderful thing" 9/10 - the line of best fit.
