There has been a lot of reinventions going on in the music world. It’s been over a decade since UNKLE has released an album. The group is back with a new member and new sound. James Levelle along with new member Pablo Clements, have just released the new album ‘Where Did The Night Fall’. Gone are the days of the trip-hop sound, sampled beats, DJ Shadow collabos, and breakbeat experiments. This time around, the duo has opted for a more industrial / Brit rock sound full of basslines, guitars, distorted vocals, and more. Featured on vocals are a plethora of musicians from all across Europe including Katrina Ford, Black Angels, Autolux, Elle J, Big In Japan, and more.
The new record draws inspiration from groups like Radiohead, Muse, Broken Social Scene, and even Joy Divison. ‘Where Did The Night Full’ art translates well as an indication to the content of the album. The tracks are moody song songs as opposed to sonic experiments.

Lavelle and Celements have stepped it up to become more than just producers with this new record. Although some may argue that is a less than mediocre return (did you really expect another “In A State”?), the guys are definitely headed in the right direction.
