• my sad captains Sun Bridge (LP, £17.50)

    label: bella union

    Three years after their last album, London’s My Sad Captains light the way to fresh shores with their radiant fourth album. Released via Bella Union, ‘Sun Bridge’ is named after the way a still lake offers the ideal conditions for the sun’s reflection to resemble a bridge across the water. Between its lustrous dream pop surfaces and hidden depths, it’s an album that reflects on how uncertain times can be the seed-bed for change: or, for a bridge to extended adventures. For My Sad Captains, evolution was necessitated by change. After the departures of Jim Wallis and Nick Goss, drummer Ben Walker and storied altpop guitarist Leon Dufficy joined the band, bringing fresh colours to the palette. Completing the live line-up are keyboardist Henry Thomas and bassist Steve Blackwell; the latter replaces Dan Davis, who worked on the album (and provided the cover painting) before moving to San Francisco. The Captains produced ‘Sun Bridge’ themselves, working with engineer Iggy B, while mixing and additional production were handled by Jeff Zeigler: a man with much expansive alt-rock previous, having worked with The War On Drugs.
