In today's music review Freddie Matthews reviews an album from his collection of favourite music by a band who call themselves I Am Kloot. If you like unusual lyrics and are a fan of the Manchester scene then you will like this band. The new album is called Let It All In and as you can see from the cover of the album they like to keep things very simple, the artwork on the cover I am sure you agree is very plain and simple, looks are very encouraging.

I Am Kloot

I Am Kloot have played live on the fringes for many years just like Elbow Freddie thinks they are well overdue a prize for good music to read more about this positive review then go over to Stirring Trouble Internationally and read the full review there.

They had very stiff competition The xx released a really popular album in 2010 called xx and that won the award instead. However any nomination for any prize does not go unnoticed I Am Kloot  got some really good press after this nomination. Freddie has supplied a quote from John Bramwell a member of the band who describes I Am Kloot as “Songs about drinking and disaster” and there are some other interesting observations from a fan of this band.

 Freddie says this is the sixth album he has purchased from this band and he says he likes the name of the album Let It All In from I am Kloots. Freddie  is a big fan of Guy Garvey and can relate with his speed of implementation of getting new albums out there. Its not great to procrastinate but we all do it right?

Freddie confesses to liking many genres of music especially blues and bands with a nice drum beat. He makes a few comparisons with the band saying 'Portishead or even Nina Simone' sound very similar to I Am Klout. Freddie says Guy Garvey influenced Elbow a lot so I suppose he means Gary Garvey perhaps influenced Elbow too.
