Last Shadow Puppets, The: The Age Of Understatement (Vinyl LP)
The Last Shadow Puppets are Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane (The Rascals). Firm friends since touring together, the pair were so inspired by listening to the likes of Scott Walker, early Bowie and David Axelrod, that they hatched a plan. They recorded songs at Black Box Studios in France, then approached Owen Pallett (Final Fantasy) to arrange and conduct the orchestration of the tracks.
The Age Of The Understatement is an album of 12 full-blooded songs, bold and brassy, full of drama, wit and melody, that source the past but avoid falling into pastiche. This is a youthful record, full of life and the sheer pleasure of music-making. 2015 reissue on 180 gram vinyl.
