I’ve heard people compare Iceage’s new Plowing The Fields Of Love to the Mekons’ 1985 classic Fear And Whiskey, but when I listen to it, the album I’m reminded of most is the Libertines’ self-titled second record. That resemblance is most apparent in Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s vocals, which share many qualities with those of Pete Doherty. I think you can really hear that in new single “How Many,” which is the third track on Plowing The Fields Of Love, and which you can spin right now. Listen below, let me know what you think.
Plowing The Fields Of Love is out 10/7 via Matador.
