Medicine and Duty are a new name to me but they feature characters I've come across before, In fact these lot are practically a super group with members of Teeth Of The Sea (Matt Colegate), Shrag, Black Neck Band of the Common Loon (Andy Pyne) and Guillotines' (Jack Cooper) all getting involved. This is their 6th studio album and the first to make it onto a slab of wax, so that's cause for celebration in itself. Medicine And Duty subscribe to a no-wave, post-punk way of thinking but apply it as if they we're a krautrock outfit. 'Sunken Carnival' takes its time to get going but once things kick off I'm treated to some excellently abstract synth and drum treats accompanied by totally bizarre digitally manipulated vocal chattering's. These vocal contributions essentially act as an extra instrument but they also provide the listener with comedic pleasure too. Much like say A Middle Sex - they enjoy building compositions into a frenzy of activity before dispersing and starting over again. The drums are propulsive, wild tub thumping affairs which helps maintain the momentum for the rest of the lads to their thing; which they do with reckless abandon.
