Working for a Nuclear Free City - "Silent Times" MP3 (PopMatters Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

23 August 2010


Manchester’s Working for a Nuclear Free City recorded their sprawling new album The Jojo Burger Tempest in an English warehouse and a French cottage. Somehow that seems fitting as the band’s sound is both simultaneously expansive and intimate. The new record is a double set with 15 new tunes on the first disc and the single, lengthy 30-minute sonic exploration that is the title song taking up the second disc. The band has a documentarian’s impulse believing that, as guitarist Gary McLure says, “an album should be a document of what a band has been doing over a certain period of time. And almost everything should be included. Like it or not.” “Silent Times” is the new single from The Jojo Tempest Burger, which releases 12 October (full album details after the jump).
