A Belton record


LOCAL boys done good The Young Knives new album came out this week, and the Belton-born duo of Henry Dartnell and The House Of Lords and Ashby-de-la-Zouch's own Oliver Askew may have cut another classic.
The band's quintessentially English brand of angular indie which earnt the band a Mercury Music Prize nomination for debut Voices Of Animals And Men is back with a vengeance on Superabundance.
However this time the horizons have widened - and it appears the band are none to pleased about what they've seen.
This new collection, although the tone may be darker, sees the band ushering in experiments in trumpets here, blankets of strings there and and overdriven guitars near enough everywhere.
Superabundance really does have it all and then some.
