Listening Station: We Won’t Stop Pushing Pram

The news of a new album from the otherworldly British electro outfit Pram–whose albums I have faithfully collected since 1995’s bewitching Helium, which is tragically still out of print–sort of snuck up on me, and I only found out two weeks ago that The Moving Frontier, their latest effort, was in fact being released today in the UK. (A US release is in the offing sometime soon.)

“Salt and Sand” from Frontier was just posted to the group’s MySpace page, and it’s a frosty, delicate song that provides a winter-beach-day backdrop to Rosie Cuckston’s sing-songy, childlike vocals; there’s a certain out-there aspect to Pram’s minimal, yet expansive music that never fails to be completely arresting, even at its most bare.
