Yes, I think I should give them a spin. Especially Some Cities.

Doves Prepare To Reclaim Their 'Kingdom'

U.K. rock act Doves is back amid the friendly confines of Astralwerks for the North American release of its fourth album, due in April.

The as-yet-untitled new set was recorded at the band's home studio in Cheshire, England, and is nearly complete, Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin tells Billboard.com. The first single will be "Kingdom of Rust," which he describes as having "a country-ish shuffle beat. It's really expansive with a wistful melody. It's quite emotional."

According to Goodwin, also due to make the final cut on the follow-up to 2005's "Some Cities" are the Kraftwerk-leaning "Jetstream," a "nod to our electronic past" sung by guitarist Jez Williams; "The Outsiders," which has a "piledriver bass line and a Can-like backbeat"; and "Winter Hill," a "vaguely country rock-esque tune."

"Everyone talks about f*cking departures, but this album is hopefully just Doves doing what they do really well, which is nicely crafted songs," Goodwin says. Asked if a country rock feel was pervasive, he replied, "We haven't made 'Nashville Skyline,' you know what I mean?"


Doves will return to live duty with U.K. shows in February, followed by a longer tour in April and likely summer festival dates internationally. The band is unsure about its ability to tour in the States "in these credit-crunched times, but we hope we'll be able to get there," Goodwin says.


WOOT

Good news! I saw them live in 2005, which was fortunate, cos in these "creditcrunched times", they sure as hell ain't gonna be touring Australia any time soon..

February – U2
March — Mute Math
April — Doves

So what would be a good starting point for this band?

Also, I really hope their music is better than their grammar.

Last Broadcast if you want a good overview of the entirety of their sound, or Lost Souls if you want something a little less eclectic. Don't listen to anything Elfa tells you; Some Cities is pretty good, but more like their bid for radio rock supremacy than a true representation of their best years. I find it nice, but rather dull.

Thanks! I'll check it out.

And you don't have to worry about me listening to anything that Elfa says.

As an album, Lost Souls is far and away my favorite, but Last Broadcast probably has more enjoyable singles. Honestly, all 3 are quite good. Can't wait for the new one, it's only 4 months away!

But yes, as LeMeL wrote, never listen to anything ELFA says.
