Episode 7: Let England Shake
This episode focuses on a record that garnered much acclaim and accolades when it was first released, and rightly so. One might say this is going against the grain of what we do at The Plough: unearthing 'hidden' gems. Yet despite the accolades, for the most part it escaped a lot of the wider public's attention - at least those that weren't focused on the music press. Produced by Mick Harvey and recorded in a church in Dorset, this is a complex, abstract, and hard-hitting album, but ultimately one of the best artistic statements of the last decade. Rohan and Chris have a great time unpacking it, and are very moved in the process.
Apologies also for the occasional glitch in recording quality on this particular podcast too: gremlins in the system.
