‘Staging The Plaguing Of The Raised Platform’ is the second single to be taken from Cornershop’s fifth album ‘Handcream For A Generation’ and you can listen to the catchy single at the link below http://www.cissme.com/bgroup/rm/wiiija/corne/audio/wij130cd-01-ra.ram
The single in concern brings together music box chimes, boogie guitar, and the captivating presence of a children’s choir, before capping the whole thing off with some mouth-watering swirling strings.
Cornershop’s Tjinder Singh and Ben Ayres are pretty satisfied with the material what they’ve come up with, ever since the smash hit ‘Brimful Of Asha’.The numbers you find on ‘Handcream For A Generation’ is a dense, more straightforward rock party, featuring Noel Gallagher, children’s choir and all. Their LP’s a superior buy and a must-have because it delivers a whole lot more than expected.
NME described the album as lifting “the soul with a joyful infusion of psychedelic thinking and cross-genre thinking … it keenly explores more musical avenues and makes more telling social comment than any of Cornershop’s contemporaries have managed in the four and a half years since the pair’s last outing … this is happy music for hard times, a ray of warm and righteous sunshine just when it’s needed most.”
Uncut made it their album of the month and said “Wonderfully bold … puts fun back on the agenda”.
‘Staging The Plaguing Of The Raised Platform’ should either be out in shops right now or out next week.
