Review of Sleaford Mods: Divide and Exit

After finishing up a music genre round of four different country music picks, Darren felt he needed to shake things up a bit. He had recently stumbled across the Sleaford Mods song, Tweet, Tweet, Tweet and loved the pure and raw DIY punk/hip hop sound that the Sleaford Mods pounded out. This is very raw, very English, and very abrasive and repetitive. You can imagine watching these two performers in a packed and drunken pub in the alleys of Nottingham, England.

After listening for a month Darren was quite worried that he rest of the group might not like this raw band, however, it was an interesting review, and though it might not be everyone’s cup of tea (English saying intended!), we all extracted something positive from the experience, and they have their own sound, which is rare in a pop-run world. Listen along if you dare and hear what our team of music loving aficionados had to say about this album.

A few things you will find out in this episode are:
• What the new DIY punk music is made from. (Hint: It’s not actual guitars or drums)
• You will never be as cool as Andrew Fearn drinking a beer on a stage and pressing a button.
• Sometimes you just want to listen to music that says “Fuck this and fuck you!!”. Now that’s punk.

Show Notes 

We take on Darren’s pick for April 2021 for punk meets rap, meets electronic; Sleaford Mod’s ‘Divide and Exit’. We weren’t sure what to expect on this one. While we weren’t super pumped about it as an entire album, we agree that no one else out there at the moment sounds like them and we’re glad we’ve had the Mods-experience.
