Therapy?

A Brief Crack Of Light, the follow-up to 2009's acclaimed Crooked Timber, just might be the most compelling album of Therapy?'s distinguished career.

The album draws upon many influences - Black Flag's primal clenched fist aggression, the skewed genius of Stewart Lee's coruscating comic monologues, the writings of Samuel Beckett, the irresistible swing and swagger of Charlie Mingus among them - to deliver a dark, unsettling compendium of 21st century schizoid noise.

From the foreboding, ominous lurch of 'Living In The Shadow Of A Terrible Thing' (the album's first single, set for release on January 23) to the haunting, sparse, shimmering beauty of 'Ecclesiastes', the ten tracks which make up A Brief Crack Of Light are claustrophobic, corrosive and challenging. It's a pitch-black survivor's manual for lost souls cast adrift in an incomprehensible world, a beautifully delineated road map of man's ugliest impulses and starkest dreads.

Baldly put, it's the finest distillation yet of an uncompromising, idiosyncratic sound and vision Therapy? have honed to a dark art.
