Sweet Billy Pilgrim - Twice Born Men

Sweet Billy Pilgrim

It's been a four-year wait for the second album from the trio of Tim Elsenburg, Anthony Bishop and Alistair Hamer. Mixing art pop with folk, post-rock and electronica into a richly layered, melancholic brew, it's a safe bet that Twice Born Men is the only Mercury nominated album to feature a 'tuned dishwasher' and to be mostly recorded in a garden shed.
