A new album by Dodgy has been a long time coming but 'Stand Upright In A Cool Place' is well worth the wait. The first album of new songs from the original line-up since the platinum selling Free Peace Sweet ( Good Enough , Found You , If You re Thinking Of Me ). This new album is deeper and more mature but with bigger choruses and stronger melodies, recorded over the summer of 2011 in an old farmhouse in Malvern and mixed by Matt Pence (Midlake, John Grant) in Texas, Already generating positive press response, Word Magazine just one of those saying Better than they were before - and they were great then Not wishing to rest on their laurels, Dodgy have already completed a series of live dates in October, Nov and December of 2011, previewing the new album in it s entirety, to enthusiastic audience response all of which points to early encouraging signs for this album.

If you are expecting it to be all ballsy harmonies and brass band-tastic, then this will surprise you. The opening track, Tripped and Fell, is a melancholy spaced out intro, but What Became Of You brings back memories of classic 90s tunes, but with a more laid back tone.
We Try exposes the harmonies to be slightly less crisp than they used to be, and they certainly aren't up there with Fleet Foxes or The Staves any more. But the quality of the songwriting is still there throughout the album, and the impression is that Dodgy have returned to writing songs that they want to play, rather than try and create music the record companies think they want us to hear. And this is always a good thing.
This is a fantastic album, in fact i think that it's their best album to date. If you're after a modern day 'Prey For Drinking' or 'Trust In Time' then you won't find it here. What you will find however, is a band that have matured and chilled out a bit, but they can still put passion into songs and can still kick out some great 'So Let Me Go Far' esque riffs.
Personal highlights for me are What Became Of You, Did It Have To Be This Way, Raggedstone Hill, and Back Of You. There's no filler on here though, it's a great album. If you liked Dodgy last time around, then you need to own this album.
