To call Sleaford Mods “unique” would be an understatement. The English duo have been making waves, as of late, in the “indie world” with their bare-bones production and raw, unfiltered lyricism. Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn are the two culprits who comprise it and I don’t believe you’ll find a single outfit quite like them. Williamson lets his thick accent bleed through in to his vulgarity filled rant about unemployment. Williamson’s delivery gives the listener the strong impression that this is a blood boiling stream of consciousness and I’d even say such if there wasn’t any evidence that “Jobseeker” wasn’t just a little bit organized – you’ll see what I mean when you listen to it. When I say bare-bones production, I mean it sounds like whatever Fearn has backing Williamson are just a bunch of presets. The synth backing to Williamson seems to merely be just a vehicle to get the man’s point across.

Williamson’s furious and he’s leaving no doubters in his midst. Some of you may be furious about the price and I have no idea why it’s that much (it does include shipping). If it’s any consolation, apparently you’ll be getting a patch with it. Check out the YouTube stream of “Jobseeker” below and see what you think of it. Cheers!

The Details

Sleaford Mods are the product of Britain’s harsh reality. It’s a punk band that, by lack of sympathy for the human race, replaced its members with a laptop. Their songs are fueled with working class philosophy, the vibe is bleak. You’ve got to be able to sell yourself so I stuck my life on eBay. £ 25 mate. True Allan Sillitoe heritage and the artistic proof that, outside of the The Cameleon Pub, Notthingham will always be the wrong side of the river Styx.

Price $19.11
