Garbage are back with a new full-length album, their sixth! They’ve retained their anthemic 90’s alt-rock sound: in fact, the band have suggested that this album found them going right back to first principles, rather than “fussing over” their sound too much. Strange Little Birds, their first album in 4 years, is released by the band’s very own label, STUNVOLUME.

Garbage return for their sixth studio album - a reflective, emotional and stylish album that still delivers the quintessential Garbage production-values. Combined with Shirley’s seductive vocals and the blistering rock forged with electronica that is their trademark, the band show no sign of getting lazy even 20+ years into their career. Highlights include the anthemic ‘Empty’, the power ballad ‘Nightdrive Loneliness’ and full-on assault on the senses of ‘So We Can Stay Aluve’. Their best album since Version 2.0.

I love Garbage but I am disappointed with this new record. It has a couple of nice upbeat tunes and a couple of nice slow tunes, but overall I find the album to very, very slow to the point of being sleepy. The good slow tunes get lost in the rest of the dreary stuff that has caused you to fall asleep. Shirley Manson seems to sing in one voice on this one as well: her earlier vocal work is noted for its range, but here she's seemed to settle onto something singular and distinct, for better or worse.
