IDLES 'BRUTALISM (Five Years of Brutalism)' LP (Red Vinyl)



VARIANT: Red Vinyl LP 

To celebrate the 5th anniversary of their smashing debut album the band created a special limited edition. This version is pressed on cherry red vinyl, packaged in a gatefold jacket with alternate cover art and a printed inner sleeve. Limited edition of 10,000 for the world. Originally released in 2017, Brutalism, was heralded as a return of loud rock by a band with feelings that they were not afraid to share and to shout them with you. IDLES are a band that transcends expectations and a styles. Yes, they rock. Yes, they’re caustic. But as this stunning debut LP shows they also know love, care and heartbreak. This album saw them successfully channel the energy of their live performances into a studio epic. IDLES and this album are the mosh pit personified: fury, sweat, excitement, aggression, happiness and everyone looking out for each other.

In a time of polarised politics and murky waters; IDLES and bands like them are needed to remind people that it's ok to dance and laugh and sing in the face of adversity. Bristol’s finest post-punk polemics IDLES have been promising to do great things for some time now, and with their debut album “Brutalism” they absolutely fulfill that promise and a furious promise at that.

Politically charged, refreshingly confrontational, and infectiously volatile, IDLES are a band like no other. Bringing the unsettling reality of the world we live in into their frantic assault on the senses, they are a band that until now could only be truly understood by witnessing in a live environment - but with “Brutalism” it surely feels like they have captured the intensity of that live sound. Bottled up here are the abrasive, memorable lyrics of Joseph Talbot delivered with all of the spite and wry humor he puts across on the stage.
