  6. Life In Units - Reviews

    'Life In Units' has been out a month now, and I'm pretty chuffed that it's got uniformly great reviews. Here's some of the best, apologies for the self-congratulatory nature of this post:

    “one of the most head-turning albums of the year” - The 405

    “Take 2 parts pure, undiluted insanity, 1 part ring modulator effects and a rock solid groove, and you’re pretty much there.” - Artrocker

    “Seriously, Alex Keegan, Nick Potter and Sam Parkin are geniuses – the idea of them sitting down and writing an album as ambitious and creative as this is inconceivable, and yet it happened. If there’s any justice in the world, in 20 years’ time there’ll be a Friday night dedicated to aggro-beat on BBC Four, or at least a late-night documentary on 6Music that explains how Blood Sport changed the face of music forever.” - Drowned In Sound 

    “Nothing Blood Sport do is by chance, and with Life in Units they have constructed an experimental behemoth which bears new fruit on every listen.” - Now Then

    “There are no half measures on Life In Units, as the chaotic opener ‘The Woodcutter’ will a-test to. ‘Palomar’ moves from slow paces guitar loops to a hypnotic dance beat, and 10 minute long closer ‘Dry Water’ is a masterclass in a drawn out ending that doesn’t get dull. 8/10” - Shout 4 Music 

    Out now, vinyl & download:http://bloodsport.bandcamp.com/album/life-in-units
