• baron four Silvaticus (CD, £16.50)

    label: get hip

    With one LP and four singles already under their belts, UK's premier garage/beat exponents The Baron Four push forward with their strongest release to date, both in terms of songs and recorded sound. All the key elements are here: fevered vocals topping off clanging guitars stewed in reverb, rumbling bass, and tumultuous drums. Tracked in glorious mono, these 12 tracks demonstrate the band's ability to combine gritty R&B-based material with garage-punk raunch.
