Doves came along to save music way back in 2000. Their first album Last Broadcast was a euphoric burst of Northern indie-soul, filtered through plaintive guitars and atmospheric soundscapes. Nearly twenty years on it still sounds fantastic and this timely re-issue will stop people having to re-mortgage their houses to acquire them on vinyl!
Here It Comes, Catch The Sun, the achingly brilliant title track (and personal favourite Cedar Room) are here in all their glory. The re-issues (all of the bands first 3 lps are now available although Some Cities is currently held up at the distributors!) sound fantastic on vinyl and are essential purchases. Following the influence of other Northern luminaries such as Stone Roses, Elbow and Oasis, Doves are peculiar because they never shouted about their greatness. They just were...
Lost Souls arrived at the dawning of a new century and blazed a trail for the melancholic. It's SO good to have this (and the other two) back on vinyl!
All are on strictly limited coloured vinyl (whilst stocks last).
