Album of the Day
The Remote Part
100 BROKEN WINDOWS introduced Idlewild to audiences beyond its native Scotland, and follow-up THE REMOTE PART furthered the Edinburgh quartet's evolution. Literate and introspective, these 11 indie anthems are played and sung with the passion of the group's punky origins though with richer and more diverse arrangements. Buoyed by singles including “You Held the World in Your Arms,” “American English” and “Live in a Hiding Place,” the collection was certified Gold in the U.K. Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, THE REMOTE PART has just been reissued on vinyl.
