UNKLE - Where Did The Night Fall

UNKLE share many characteristics with Doctor Who. Reappearing every few years with a new face but fundamental personality traits intact, both attract earnest young fellas who pore over all available details and engender unhealthy levels of devotion.

Now on their fifth full-length, UNKLE have once again roped in a slew of guest vocalists (Mark Lanegan, Sleepy Sun) and continued their journey from Mo’ Wax distillers to cinematic swamp dwellers.

At turns utterly beautiful and thoroughly frustrating, there is no doubting the tarnished grandeur on display albeit tempered by some unnecessary navel gazing.
