Andy Stott returns with slow burning double EP It Should Be Us, new album coming in 2020

We couldn’t let this pass us by – Andy Stott (not to be confused with DJ Andy Scott) is back! Surely a shoo-in for one of our favourite artists of the 2010s, he’s been weaving dense club-not-club tapestries for the best part of the decade, from the inauguration of “knackered house” on 2011’s Passed Me By and We Stay Together EPs, through to the triptych of album releases that expanded, refined, and wholly redefined the sound. And that’s not even to mention his work as Andrea. Except I just did.

Stott returns with a double pack, name of It Should Be Us, on the familiar Modern Love stomping ground and, as ever, replete with a black and white photo on the cover that’s mirrored round the back. You call it predictable, I call it tonal consistency.

It can be ordered at Boomkat right now, and the closing track “Versi” leads below as a showcase of the double EP’s “pure and bare-boned energy, melodies subsumed by drum machines and synths; slow, rugged abandon.”

It is also known that a new album has been penned for release in 2020, so watch this space keenly; judging by the copy, one could probably wager that the clubbier It Should Be Us will excavate the site for an altogether deeper, stranger beast to emerge in the new year.
