British Sea Power Prep Second LP

Published: 2004-11-29
The newest offering from oddball indie rockers British Sea Power will be available early next year. The quartet's second full-length album at this time remains unnamed, but is expected to hit shelves in Spring 2005. The recording process has already been completed, and the finishing touches are currently being put on the record.

For the new album British Sea Power pulled in Mads Bjerke to record and Bill Price to mix the majority of the tracks. In addition to working with Spiritualized and Primal Scream, Bjreke also engineered BSP's debut album; Price is known for his work with Mott the Hoople, The Sex Pistols, and The Clash, among others. Two of the tracks included on the new album were produced by Graham Sutton, who is also a member of Bark Psychosis.

Rumour has it that the new album will be a step away from 2003 debut 'The Decline of British Sea Power'. Apparently this means the songs are more melodious, and feature more commonplace lyrics (no more odes to wooden horses or different types of rocks, then?). About the upcoming release, British Sea Power guitarist Noble said: "This album is a bit different to the first one. We think you could listen to this one all the way through without falling off your bike. Is that a good thing? Time alone will tell."

Known only by their first names (Yan, Hamilton, Noble, Woody, and Eamon), BSP are perhaps best known for their unique live performances. It's not often that the British band's stage is found without a variety of foliage and stuffed birds on display, and the five members are usually clad in military uniforms whilst performing.
