Released: 17.06.22









The sophomore album from the excellent Bartees Strange picks up where his debut Live Forever left off. Another round of exceptional genre hopping, from funk-tinged indie rock ballads, to chilled out hip-hop, Farm To Table has a bit of everything. The likes of Black Gold demonstrate Strange’s ability to turn his hand to most genres. Equally, Tours and Hold The Line allow his vocals to really shine in a stripped-back setting.

Wretched and Escape The Circus are where Farm To Table really comes alive, the power and passion in the former is brilliant, with driving guitars coupled with incessant groove making. Wretched is a truly standout track and the whole record sees Bartees Strange move up a gear.
