Sarandon return to the fray with nothing other than a concept album. Flying the flag for Prog Rock? Maybe. Still annoyed by Twee Pop? Definitely.
Sarandon’s “Age Of Reason” tells the story of Big Trev, a man frustrated with his lot and determined to change his life. The album is narrated by The Shend (The Cravats, The Very Things) who plays the voice of the story’s hero. Musically Sarandon have moved their sound forward – Produced once again by the inimitable Anthony Chapman (Collapsed Lung, Bis, Klaxxons, Ten Benson), the sound is a more mature take on the angular agit-pop of their previous outings. The cheese-wire treble of the guitars remains, the bass thuds and booms and the drums clatter at light speed, but the songs contained in “Sarandon’s Age Of Reason” are more carefully crafted and arranged. There are songs to make you shout and songs to make you sing. There are even songs to make you dance. Sarandon are back with a vengeance. Back to rescue you all from the mundanity of modern la-la-love-you indie pop.
Other guests on the album include Robert Lloyd (The Nightingales) and Rhodri Marsden (Scritti Politti).
Sarandon are currently:
Crayola (Colgates, Future Sperm Brasil): Guitar & Voice
Alan Brown (bIG fLAME, The Great Leap Forward): Bass & Voice
Tom Greenhalgh (World Sanguine Report): Drums & Voice
