NEW: The Charlatans - 'Keep Enough'

The eleven tracks that make up The Charlatans' 12th album mark something of a new chapter for this remarkable group. There aren't many bands who have been through as much turmoil and there are even fewer that have managed to survive. Yet after over 25 years after their formation, they are back with one of their strongest pieces of work to date. ‘Modern Nature’ is their first album since 2010's 'Who We Touch' and the first to be released since the sad death of drummer Jon Brookes in 2012. But rather than dwell on their bad luck, the band have once again triumphed over tragedy with a stellar set of tracks coloured with melancholic sunshine, soul vibes and subtle shades of funk. In their own words: “songs that made us happy.” Sumptuous guitar hook and swooning strings make for a stunning combination on the gorgeous Curtis Mayfield-esque 'Keep Enough', which is just one of many amazing tracks on this LP.
