Less immediate than 2008’s Do You Like Rock Music? and more in tune with the bands’ pioneer spirit than 2011’s Valhalla Dancehall, Machineries of Joy, as is the case with any BSP album, requires more than a cursory spin to reveal its riches
Album · 2013 · 10 Songs. Mission statements don’t get more succinct than We are magnificent machineries of joy, the title-track chorus that warmly welcomes us into British Sea Power’s fifth album. And when the epic tune’s hypnotic, string-swept rhythm kicks into high gear, the UK art rockers deliver on that promise. But the joy takes many different forms: Monsters of Sunderland is a whirling dervish of brass fanfares and bouncing-ball drumbeats; Radio Goddard retains the horn section’s services for a lush acoustic serenade illuminated by angelic backing vocals. Machineries of Joy British Sea Power.
Machineries of Joy, draws liberally from their 2012 limited release BSR EPs, stays the course, guided by hyperbole and extremes. Poaching the LP’s title from a collection of Ray Bradbury short stories, BSP pays homage to the sci-fi icon with spectral, futuristic effects on What You Need the Most. Channeling more of this haunting aura, Machineries of Joy pairs a heart-twisting viola with Martin Noble’s sparse, glistening electric guitar as a sagely Scott Wilkinson belts: We are a vision of extraordinary contortion. Between Abi Fry’s lilting viola and Wilkinson’s cogent, sentimentalist vocals, BSP sails through Machineries of Joy without any fatal blunders.
