Elbow
Giants of All Sizes

I like them tall giants, I like them small giants, I like them brown-haired giants, I like them blonde-haired giants… Unfortunately Giants Of All Sizes, the latest LP from stadium-bothering Mancunians Elbow, doesn’t actually include a cover of Calvin Harris’ ‘The Girls’. Shame, that. What the band’s eighth album does contain is more of that brooding, baroque rock music that Guy Garvey et al do so well. Think of them as Northern England’s answer to The National.

Elbow
Little Fictions

Look, new Elbow! This band of friendly Mancunians have been known to split opinions in the Norman office, but they are beloved to many, and with good cause. Little Fictions is the band’s seventh album, put together by Garvey and the gang with special contributions from the The Hallé Orchestra and the London Contemporary Voices choir. Sweeping and intimate at the same time, just like Elbow. Released by Universal.

Guy Garvey
Unwind

Elbow crooner and plaintive singer songwriting's answer to Bruce Forsyth (see pic) takes time away from being played or talked about or presenting on BBC 6 Music to release a single from his recent 'Courting the Squall' record. The lead track is the popular 'Unwind' but there's no information on what is on the B side. It could be a cover of Forsyth's 'Chin Up' for all we know.

Guy Garvey
Courting The Squall

After releasing six albums with his band, Elbow, including the Mercury Music Prize winning The Seldom Seen Kid (2008), Guy Garvey sets out alone with Courting The Squall. The album was made simply because Garvey loves making albums (and has recently split up with his wife so will be dead bored - ed). Nevertheless, it’s still a deeply felt personal statement and serves as a glimpse into his very being.....(and his enormous chin- ed (again)). 

Elbow and the BBC Concert Orchestra
The Seldom Seen Kid (Live At Abbey Road)

Surely one of Elbow’s finest achievements, the Seldom Seen Kid album is now more than ten years old! To celebrate, here is Elbow plus the BBC Concert Orchestra, performing the album in full with lots of lush extra string bits at the prestigious Abbey Road studios. It's a beautiful performance of a wonderful album, recorded in perfect clarity from a band loved by the BBC even more than they love the Conservative party.
