LET IT ALL ALL IN
I am Kloot
(EMI)

The sixth full-lengther from Elbow's Manchester drinking buddies sounds like a drizzly autumn midweek afternoon pint of ale with curmudgeonly friends.

Which is a good thing.

John Bramwell's songwriting is as northern-realistic as Lowry and just as colourful - with topics hunched around beer-sticky pub tables with lost-soul stares.

2010's Sky at Night was Mercury Prize nominated and, with Elbow's Guy Garvey is once again at the production controls helping to eek out the downbeat tales with drifting indie-wash soundscapes, there's no reason why this excellent - if sombre - offering shouldn't give I am Kloot some well-deserved silverware.
