Glasvegas – ‘Later… When The TV Turns To Static’

Score

<i>Kitchen-sink desolation, in a good way</i>

The title may be a subliminal pitch to Jools Holland, but ‘Later…’ is gut-punchingly direct. “I think my friends have all given up on me“, sings James Allan from his “lonely attic“, painting a picture as desolate as anything Ken Loach could come up with. A downer, in the best way.
