8/10 according to on Thu 12 Nov, 2009

Originally a Leicester based angular post-hardcore style outfit, after 15 years Lazarus Clamp have morphed into a most delicious proposition. Coming in somewhere between earthy folk-rock & a loose, fluid British take on Dischord-y post-rock, new album 'Against Entitlement' finds them in blistering form. I like this album loads because of the way it ambles, snakes, flows - the free drums tumble & dance, guitars lazily entwine & chatter, a violin sings jauntily at various junctures & then the vocalist tops it all with his voice - simultaneously rich, ordinary and heartfelt! They've got a nice deep, full production on this album which highlights what a down-to-earth but tight set of musicians they are. I hear allsorts of influences from Tortoise to bluegrass, Alt-country & regional folk music to the more freeform realms of American underground rock but with this record I suspect they're asking you to not search for lazy, desperate comparisons & just take them on their own merits for this is one of the richest, most satisfying & honest albums i've heard in many, many weeks. Deluxe vinyl with bonus CD, don't hesitate on this one!

10/10 according to on

Wow I'm really impressed to see you've featured this as one of your hottest releases of the week!I artworked the vinyl and CD, for once I am friends with the band you are recommending.It's a great album, you can really hear the progression with Lazarus Clamp over the past few years and are definitely in the realms of 'I actually love listening to this' rather than just 'I'll listen to it because it's my mate's band!'
