Logs off on a high
The Streets - Computers And Blues

“You can’t Google the solutions to people’s problems” reasons Mike Skinner on ‘Puzzled By People’, the truth behind the everyman introspection he’s spent years conducting suddenly dawning on him. Still confused but back on form, The Streets’ final album (Skinner wants to make a film) sees a return to garage beats and square-eyed observations from a life staring at pixels on screens.

Four of the tracks on ‘Computers And Blues’ were given away on Twitter and with songs about Facebook romance and Xbox addiction Mike Skinner logs off on a high, forever stored in our cultural cache.
