Fathers 'Heavy Heavy'

Pitchblack Playback's Best Albums Of 2023 series continues with a
double-header featuring two of the UK's most innovative artists
operating at the borders of electronica, modern soul and pop.
First up, James Blake's superb 'Playing Robots Into Heaven', which sees
him return to the more experimental leanings of his earlier work with
triumphant results. Then, Scottish trio Young Fathers' punchy, succinct,
Mercury-nominated 'Heavy Heavy'—a riot of energetic styles which were
backed by an explosive live show (recently garnering a 5* review from
The Guardian at our neighbouring Hammersmith Apollo).
Hear these incredible records in all their glory played loud in
uncompressed 24-bit audio through every speaker of our sub-heavy Screen
One sound system for you to hear and feel every nuance. No distractions;
just you and the music
