Dry Cleaning, Stumpwork, Limited Edition, White Colored Vinyl, LP, 16 Page Booklet, 4AD, 2022
Less than eighteen months after the release of their debut album New Long Leg, Dry Cleaning return with their sophomore album entitled Stumpwork. With 25M+ streams behind them and over 75K worldwide album sales alongside late night TV in the US and UK and ubiquity across Best of… lists (Rough Trade Album of the Year / Pitchfork Best New Music / Guardian *), 2021 established the band as one of the biggest breakthrough indie acts of recent years.
This is reflected in the ambition of their new record. For their follow-up, the London four-piece returned to the iconic Rockfield Studios to work once again with producer John Parish. Furious indie-pop anthems combine across the record with psych and prog influences, demonstrating the wealth of influences the band feed off and their deep musicality. Surrealist lyrics are as ever at the forefront, but the new album gives greater opportunity to explore bugged out guitar jams, and immersive journeys touching on krautrock territory.
