Nine Black Alps-Candy For The Clowns

Nine Black Alps are back with their fifth studio album, Candy For The Clowns, and it sees them returning to top form.  As well as being the bands fifth album it is the first full length released by Leeds label Hatch Records, born from the ashes of the excellent Brew Records label.
Nine Black Alps have always had an enthralling grungey sound and lead single Novakaine makes sure the album gets off to a truly spectacular start.  Although the band has a very British sound they sometimes carry a college rock theme on tracks like the excellent Patti.  Nine Black Alps continue to mix their sound up on the sublime Something Else, a great track with a fascinating sense of the psychedelic.  The harsh tones of Destroy Me make for a standout moment and gritty, lo-fi Clownbrings an absolutely top notch album to a conclusion.
