6th album from the UK’s ‘post-punk electronic balladeers’ featuring guest appearances from Kelli Ali (Sneaker Pimps), Blaine L. Reininger, Luc van Lieshout, Bruce Geduldig (Tuxedomoon), John Ellis (Stranglers/ Peter Hammill), and Godmother of Japanese electronica Coppe’.
Following on from the success of 2012’s Above as Below (with cover art from 2014 Grammy-nominee Jonathan Barnbrook for Bowie’s ‘The Next Day’) Cult With No Name return with the astonishing ‘Another Landing’.
CWNN’s sixth long player reveals the London duo to be in a defiant mood, which notably picks up the pace. Amongst the meticulously executed and emotive piano wizardry of the likes of ‘Swept Away’, the band cast a more urgent and scathing eye on the state of the nation, or rather indignation, with the pulsing Indian-electro of ‘Everything Lasts an Age’.
Elsewhere, the witty Walter + Wally sounds something like Phil Spector running Café del Mar, and certainly nothing like the two musicians it pays tribute to. The plaintive ‘Not so ‘Big in Japan’’ devilishly pokes fun at musicians who claim they are anything but, with ‘Over and Out of Here’ providing a soaring and fitting electronic crescendo to the band’s latest, and finest excursion.
With the now typical mélange of notable guest appearances, including most of the legendary Tuxedomoon, Cult With No Name may have finally secured their passport…but to where?
Packaged in a deluxe fold-out box, with booklet and stickers (designed by Leigh @ Bit-Phalanx), ‘Another Landing’ upholds the tradition of stunning packaging that accompanies CWNN releases.
