Plaid have plopped out a new EP called On Other Hands and it's quite the curveball. The lead track Elevator is a right stomper: they've been playing it live for some time, as you can see in the video above.
I love the snarly gnarly tech bite of second track Odica. The eardrum-banging freshness of On Other Hands is an impressive feat, following so soon after The Digging Remedy. That album, by the way, is reviewed in July's Electronic Sound, which you can pre-order now.
I've got a ticket to see Plaid and The Bee in Manchester - a city whose emblem is indeed the bee.
It's been a few years since I've seen them because, well, I'm rubbish.
Wait, am I missing Plaid tonight because I'm working? Bugger me sideways with a German flute, I didn't even know they were playing.— Fat Roland (@FatRoland) October 4, 2011
This is the gig. Come join me.
