Mark James Hammond & The Slender Blind - Cast Off

MJH&TSB are a recording project from Gateshead and their self-titled debut album, released in 2018, was a dream-pop-dunked thing of beauty. Their second long-player sees Hammond exploring the impact five years’ worth of training to become a psychotherapist has had on his life (Carl Jung is cited as an influence). It’s an altogether heavier release than their debut, pleasingly sludgy in parts, but those monumental hooks still pull you right in. Very impressive. GM
