FONTAINES D.C 'A Hero's Death' LP
Barely a year after the release of their hugely acclaimed debut album Dogrel, cult indie-rock outfit FontainesD.C. have returned with an intensely confident, patient, and complex follow up album, A Hero's Death.
Arriving battered and bruised -albeit beautiful -the album is anything but a re-hash of the swaggering energy from their first record. Instead, the music is patient, confident, and complex –a heady and philosophical take on the modern world and its great uncertainty. First album review is in –5/5 Q Magazine (UK)
