Product Description


"other bands may currently be overshadowed by the attention justly lavished upon Elbow, but young four piece Keith may soon share their pedestal" -- Q, Feb, 2009

"a melange of styles and sounds containing echoes of early (i.e good) Verve, Stereolab and Doves, while never really sounding like anything other than itself. Vice and Virtue proves Keith to be on the side of the angels" -- NME, Jan, 2009

"bristling with the feral tensions of "In Rainbows" and joining the disparate dots betwwen the Arcade Fire, Six by Seven and XTC" -- Uncut,Feb, 2009

"every song on their second album points to a potential brilliance" -- Guardian, Jan, 2009

This is just an incredible album from the most under-rated and creative band in the UK. I was a big fan of the band's 2006 debut Red Thread, and therefore had very high hopes but I am honestly truly blown away by this album. The album has been produced by Dan Carey (Sly & Robbie, Hot Chip, Franz Ferdinand) and it has a beautifully warm and expansive sound with some lovely electronic touches. Highlights are many but include Lullaby, Runaway Town and I Don't Want To Be A Part to which all three, for me, best capture the album's air of longing.

As always with Keith it is quite impossible to categorize their music - in fact, the one unifying element in their sound is the lack of easily identifiable styles. They do, however, seem to touch effortlessly on Mancunian reference points without being backwards-looking or reverential; it's there in the Morrissey-esque twang in the vocals, the echoes of Joy Division-era Hooky in the insistent bass, and the references to A Certain Ratio's proto-house drumming in the intricate beats. But there's more there too: Krautrock, Afrobeat, jazz and electronica all bubble up in Keith's mix.

I hope they gain a wider audience - they deserve it.
