The Cinematic Orchestra
Ma Fleur

The Cinematic Orchestra’s 2007 LP Ma Fleur is the one that’s turned them into the big-boy act we all know today. Opener ‘To Build A Home’, for instance, gets played any time someone in a BBC drama needs to emote and Sigur Rós’ ‘Hoppípolla’ isn’t at hand. A lot of the tracks on Ma Fleur do that thing where they blend electronic and acoustic instruments. It’s as if Lemon Jelly never happened.

The Cinematic Orchestra
Live At The Royal Albert Hall

A bit of in concert nicey-nice from The Cinematic Orchestra here. The band’s baroque electronica translates well to the grand surroundings of London’s Royal Albert Hall. This being the venue where they do the Proms it’s no surprise to find out that The Cinematic Orchestra bussed in a 24-piece orchestra for this 2007 gig. Live At The Royal Albert Hall also features guest turns from Grey Reverend, Heidi Vogel and Lou Rhodes.

The Libertines
The Libertines

Whether you could cope with their tabloid-friendly jack the lad personas or not, there's no arguing that this bunch of London wasters created a raggle taggle sound that refreshed British guitar music. At a time when most popular 'indie bands' were as benign and manufactured as any Simon Cowell protege, the Libertines lived their music and embodied a rock and roll lifestyle that is generally frowned upon by tut tutters. The fact that security were brought in to stop the two creative leaders fighting during the recording of this second record should be enough to convince you that they meant it, maaaan.    

The National
Cherry Tree

Though it was released mere months before KT Tunstall’s Brit-country classic ‘Black Horse And The Cherry Tree’, this 2004 EP from The National is ostensibly an unrelated work. Mind you, we reckon ol’ KT would go for a bit of the group's spit-and-sawdust balladry, so who’s to say? The group were several years off being the arena-bothering band they are now, something which explains the more modest sound of the recordings here. Quite a few of the tracks are not dissimilar to what Nick Cave was doing around the same time.

The National
Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers

Say what you like about The National, but they sure do know how to market themselves. This is no surprise, really - singer Matt Berninger worked in advertising during the ‘90s boom in NYC before quitting to pursue The National full-time. As such, he probably knew that calling the group’s sophomore LP Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers was a shrewd move. It also set up The National’s audience nicely for the huge successes of the band’s subsequent full-lengths. Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers is the first of The National’s albums to be produced Peter Katis and feature Bryce Dessner on various instruments.

The National
The National

Before Trouble Will Find Me, before High Violet, before Boxer - hell, even before flipping Alligator - The National were just one of many NYC bands jostling for attention in the fallow years between Sonic Youth’s early successes and the coming of The Strokes. The band’s eponymous LP was released in the same year as Is This It, but as we all know Dessner, Berninger et al would have to wait a few years for their turn. That’s no comment on the quality of this, their debut full-length - the blend of alt-country, Americana and indie-rock here laid the foundations for the group's later successes.
