A consistently intriguing album which may prove more enduring than its predecessor.
Jeanette Leech 2013-01-16
“The future keeps coming,” warns I Am Kloot’s frontman, John Bramwell, twice over the course of I Am Kloot’s sixth studio album Let It All In. On Hold Back the Night, he spits it: you must fear and fight the future, he seems to tell us; you must grasp whatever crumbs you can from the present. Yet, on These Days Are Mine, he offers us a rare optimism. Look forward to what’s to come. The days will be better, full of life, so don’t you worry.
What is the future for I Am Kloot? As the band enters its 14th year, their bitter poetry seems destined to always remain a sideshow attraction. Even with the Elbow connection (Guy Garvey and Craig Potter produce this album, as they have prior efforts), even with their 2010 Mercury nomination for Sky at Night, I Am Kloot’s ascent has been glacial.
A possible explanation for the band’s cult constancy without a mainstream breakthrough is that they simply enjoy obstinacy. In this spirit, Let It All In feels like a snub to those who might have picked up on the band from the lush Sky at Night. I Am Kloot have replaced that album’s rich texture with a careworn poignancy. It recalls their earlier, coarser albums.
It’s not that the melodies on Let It All In are sour. Indeed, Some Better Day has the parping horns of a Sunday afternoon concert in the local park, and Masquerade somehow combines Manchester jangle with flamenco flourish. Sometimes the sound is huge: the axe interlude in Bullets and the string-laden grandeur of Hold Back the Night are genuine arms-aloft moments. Yet, even at at most epic turns, there’s a real abrasiveness to this. Lyrical spears and vocal splinters constantly snag the ears.
The net result is a baleful, almost bluesy collection of songs that’s certainly harder to love than Sky at Night. But it’s a consistently intriguing album and, in the long run, may even prove more enduring than its predecessor. At the very least, it’s another strong contribution to an uncompromising back catalogue.
The future is unlikely to be Kloot. But lurking in the shadows of the present suits them well. (http://www.bbc.co.uk)
Highly acclaimed Manchester three piece I Am Kloot are back on January 21st 2013 with the stunning new album 'Let It All In'; the follow-up to the Mercury nominated ‘Sky At Night’, which saw the band cement their status as classic British song-makers.
Written by John Bramwell and produced once again by Guy Garvey and Craig Potter from Elbow, the 10 track album is full to the brim with beautiful and atmospheric songs. From the dramatic, almost cinematic orchestral flourishes on the first single "Hold Back The Night" to songs such as "Masquerade" which sees the band in their purest and perhaps simplest song writing mode, but no less breath-taking for that. Following up "Sky At Night" was always going to be tough, but with "Let It All In" the band will undoubtedly top those achievements. It is a must have album for any serious music fan.
Biography by Andy Kellman
I Am Kloot is an oddball pop trio based in Manchester, England, that consists of vocalist/guitarist John Bramwell, drummer Andy Hargreaves, and guitarist/bassist Pete Jobson. Bramwell used his contacts as a gig promoter to reel in Hargreaves and Jobson from their former bands. A week after their first show (at the same venue Bramwell promoted gigs at), they released their debut single, Titanic/To You. After another single in early 2000, the group signed to Wall of Sound offshoot We Love You. A two-part single for Morning Rain was released in June of 2001, and the full-length Natural History was out by the end of the year. The trio signed a new recording contract with the Echo label and teamed up with producer Ian Broudie to record their self-titled second album, released in summer 2003. Broudie added his textbook production touches to the album, expanding the I Am Kloot sound to provide the perfect framework for Bramwell's finely observed lyrical vignettes. The trio undertook their first U.S. tour in 2005 in support of the belated stateside release of I Am Kloot. Shortly afterwards, they released their third European album, Gods And Monsters. The band's fourth full-length outing, I Am Kloot Play Moolah Rouge, arrived in 2008, followed by 2009's B, a compilation of B-sides, rarities, and unreleased songs. Released in 2010, Sky at Night was produced by Craig Potter and Guy Garvey from Elbow. It was their most commercially successful album; it reached number 24 on the U.K. albums chart, and it was also short-listed for the Mercury Prize. Let It All In, the band's sixth album, was issued in early 2013.
