A centred, powerful statement as the final studio album from the sibling duo. Recorded in the lush environs of Nashville's Blackbird Studios, the trumpet, bagpipes and 1940's synthesiser all feel appropriate here, driving home the idea that the band were consistent through whatever disparate elements they chose. A 13 track 180gm vinyl 2 LP set.
Icky Thump was the last studio album released by the Detroit duo. Recorded in Nashville in three weeks, the band’s sixth album is a noisy, cranky piece of work. Jack’s ever-rueful lyrics raise the sighing cynicism of 2005’s Get Behind Me Satan to a roaring snarl, while the music returns to its ferocious slash-and-burn roots, with no shortage of strangled distortion.
