£20.99 – x 2 180g LP
Having toured Britain with full, competition-standard brass orchestras, including a sellout night in the main hall at London’s Barbican Centre, British Sea Power – described by The Sunday Times as “the best band in Britain” – now present ‘Sea Of Brass’, a new studio album born out of these live brass-backed shows. The LP release comes on double heavyweight vinyl and includes six extra tracks.
The release stems from live shows, including sell-out main hall Barbican show, which gained coverage in The Guardian, Evening Standard, The Independent and more and follows the 12th anniversary re-issue of their indie classic debut ‘The Decline Of British Sea Power’.
Including re-workings of much loved tracks from previous albums including ‘Machineries Of Joy’, ‘Valhalla Dancehall’ and ‘Do You Like Rock Music?’, the studio versions of the brass arrangements were recorded with the Foden’s Band, a renowned Cheshire-based brass ensemble, formed in 1900. Foden’s Band have won numerous international prizes and in 2012 won a rare brass-band double, being crowned both British Open champions and National Champions of Great Britain.
