Well done the Financial times is all I can say. It's not a paper that is regularly posted through the letterbox but an off chance reading of it at a public library turned up a short review of "I am Kloot's" new album "Sky at Night" which ended with the plea that it is "time surely for this Manchester band of everymen to have their day in the sun too". The FT is emphatically right "Sky at night" is a revelation and an album of consummate song-writing and big songs. Unbelievably this is the fifth album for this three piece Mancunian band who comprise John Bramwell (guitar/vocals), Peter Jobson (bass)and Andy Hargreaves (drums). They formed in 1999 and sadly over that period have been so far below the radar that a Lockheed Blackbird would have had trouble spotting them. Dear old John Peel tried his best to promote the band but we didn't listen properly.

"I am Kloot's" predicament has some similarities to there mentors and great chums in Elbow who also struggled to gain their rightful recognition for far too many years until they unleashed the wonders of the "Seldom Seen Kid" one of the greatest albums of the last or any decade for that matter. Since 2001 "I am Kloot" have had a big Elbow connection with Guy Garvey producing their debut and for their latest Garvey has enlisted fellow band mate Craig Potter to help at the mixing desk. It appears that the newly found "Elbow Magic" has rubbed off and resulted in another brilliant Kloot album but one this time that represents a real leap in consistency and maturity.

Clearly the two big songs on here intended to draw people in are the opener "Northern Skies" currently subject to blanket playing on Radio 2 and the penultimate song the jaw dropping "Radiation".

I've long been an admirer of the songwriting skills of John Bramwell, who is in my humble opinion one of our most skilled lyricists. With me also being a fan of Elbow (this was co-produced by Guy Garvey and Craig Potter), I was eager to get my ears around this album to see how the partnership fared (mates don't always make great working partners...trust me!!).

I think 2010 has been a pretty damn good year for music (well, the type I like anyhow!) and I've been impressed with The National, Cherry Ghost, Laura Marling, Joanna Newsom, Tracey Thorn amongst others....but SKY AT NIGHT absolutely blew me away. The songs have a warm depth, lyrically profound as you would expect, but with a more 'complete' sound than on previous IAK offerings. It is an obvious comparision, but the arrangements and layering of sound is very Elbowesque, but for me, it's less dramatic and more melancholic..if that makes any sense!

Stand out tracks for me....I STILL DO, which is has a gentle unasuming flow to it..absolutely beautiful, and THE MOON IS A BLIND EYE.

All in all...an absolute GEM of a album, and I hope this is the one that gives them the rewards they deserve. After all, critical aclaim don't pay the rent....BUY THIS ALBUM!!!

I Am Kloot's failure to shift magatons of CDs is an enigma. They have churned out quality discs for the
best part of 10 years but that big breakthrough has never quite materialised. With this, their fifth album
proper, Kloot have gone for a bigger production and a change in direction. The use of strings and horns
has expanded the sound and johnny's voice is right at the edge of your speakers rather than its usual set
back position. Some quirky arrangements also set this apart from any other previous Kloot album which tend
to contain songs of the verse/chorus/middle 8 ilk. One change I am not enthralled by is how low pete jobsons
Bass guitar is in the mix? His bass lines are often wonderful and are integral to the Kloot sound. Having said that,
a 'different' album was required this time around as they have probably exhausted that rich formula that worked
so well on previous recordings. Another interesting thing about The Sky at Night is the lack of variation in tempo.
Its quite slow all the way through but who cares as long as its good music? All in all, a welcome addition to an
impressive back catalogue of intelligent indiepop. Indiepop? I always describe them as simon and garfunkel for the
noughties but with only 1 singer. Its all good.

Produced by Elbow duo Craig Potter and Guy Garvey this album is built around bittersweet lyrics and melodies. The world-weary Manchester trio have perfected their penchant for earthy, Northern, expressive, nostalgic, elegant tunes to the point where one can nearly taste the cigarette smoke and brown ale. Its just the night practically drags the moon out of the sky and lights up a shabby bedsit in a terraced house; fragile, derelict, beautiful, with a lovely little guitar solo to boot. I still do is a yearning, wistful, nostalgic ballad based around guitar arpeggios that should be given national treasure status and made available foc in every phone booth for the lonely & lovely. Album of the year?
