When will Thom Yorke return to basics? Not for the longest time hopefully if he can inspire acts like Uzi & Ari (named after the kids in the Royal Tenenbaums) to produce stunners like this. ‘Don’t Black Out’ is multi-dimensional effort relying on the twin props of electronica and indie rock to propel its dark vision. Ben Shepard’s singing is the main thrust that offers a swish combination of the creepy and the cute. He and the 3 others are signed up to Crying Girl Records and Luxembourg’s very Own Records. And what a signing they are too, for once substance is not allied to impenetrability which so often scuppers promising propositions. KD
