My Top 10 Albums of 2013 – No.9

Out Of Touch In The Wild9. Dutch UnclesOut of Touch in the Wild

The upward trajectory of Manchester’s Dutch Uncles continued apace with this, their third album. As with 2011’s Cadenza, the five-piece build layers of small guitar bursts onto keyboard (and now xylophone) phrases, with unconventional time-signatures, before singer Duncan Wallis adds his distinctive, 80s-influenced vocals. But it is when performed live that Out of Touch really comes, well, alive, with the funky bass grooves of ‘Bellio’ and ‘Flexxin’ impossible not to dance to.
