SARANDONS AGE OF REASON 0311CC
2011 release, a concept album from the respected British Indie rockers. Age of Reason tells the story of Big Trev, a man frustrated with his lot and determined to change his life. The album is narrated by the Shend (of the Cravats and the Very Things) who plays the voice of the story's hero. Produced once again by the inimitable Anthony Chapman (Collapsed Lung, Bis, Klaxons, Ten Benson), the album is a more mature take on the angular agit-pop of their previous outings. The cheese-wire treble of the guitars remains, the bass thuds and booms and the drums clatter at light speed, but the songs contained in Sarandon's Age of Reason are more carefully crafted and arranged. There are songs to make you shout and songs to make you sing. There are even songs to make you dance. Sarandon is back with a vengeance: back to rescue you all from the mundane of modern la-la-love-you Indie Pop.
