Album review: I Am Kloot, Let It All In (Shepherd Moon/EMI)
Sunday 20 January 2013
Seven albums ago, John Bramwell – a living, breathing, singer-songwriter – was something of a novelty (even if I Am Kloot was, and is, nominally a band).
Nowadays, every gap-year Hooray Henry/Henrietta reckons they can do it. The Mancunian, nevertheless, retains the edge. Like its Mercury-nominated predecessor, Let It All In may not score for originality, but it marries a downbeat songcraft to an expansive sound courtesy of producers Guy Garvey and Craig Potter.
