LISTEN: 'The Race for Space', Public Service Broadcasting, 2015
We say: "A spell binding studio album combining audio from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material around live drums, guitar, banjo and electronics. With songs dedicated to Sputnik, Gagarin, Apollo 11 and more, there are countless poignant, moving moments set to catchy, hypnotic melodies. Unmissable."
