We are already halfway through 2011 and already there’s been several contenders for albums of the year. One that may not be making the lists in the USA is Factorycraft by Found. The reason being it seems no-one here has heard it. Could be in part due to it not being released over here yet but regardless of all that its a serious contender for my top albums list.
Hailing from Scotland and signed to Scotland’s greatest record label Chemikal Underground , Found have released an exquisite and unique record. They manage to meld genres from punk & indie to electronica without ever really committing to any of them. Also the front mans name is Ziggy (and yes Ziggy plays guitar) so they cant fail to be balls out brilliant.
