Andy Stott has followed up his banner 2011 with a new LP of Mariana Trench techno.
In contrast to the oubliette music of last year’s career revitalising Passed Me By and We Stay Together, Luxury Problems is dappled with light. Held together by vocals from his former piano teacher Alison Skidmore, it’s a gorgeous, heady listen, as reminiscent of classic trip-hop as anything in the Modern Love back catalogue.
