This week's feature album comes from UK duo Sleaford Mods with their highly anticipated sixth studio album Spare Ribs.

In the lead up to the release Sleaford Mods have delighted fans with singles 'Shortcummings', 'Mork n Mindy ft. Billy Nomates' and ‘Nudge It', which featured Melbourne's own Amy Taylor from punk outfit Amyl and the Sniffers.

‘Nudge It’ partners James Williamson’s trademark lyrical wit with Amy's energetic and unmistakable vocals. The polemical Williamson and dexterous producer Andrew Fearn kick against the pricks with unrivalled bite, railing against hypocrisy, inequality and apathy with their inimitable, scabrous sense of humour.

On Spare Ribs the duo are charged with ire at the UK Government’s sense of entitlement, epitomised by its devil-may-care approach to the coronavirus crisis.

Recorded in lockdown in a furious three-week studio blitz, Spare Ribs is the sound of a band so sure of their own sonic terrain that they can now explore its outer regions. The album’s title, Jason says, emerged from “the idea of the amount of people that died from the first wave of coronavirus; human lives are always expendable to the elites… We’re in a constant state of being spare ribs.”

Spare Ribs is out now via Rough Trade and Remote Control Records.
