THE LEVELLERS / Static on the Airwaves (2012)

Tenth studio album from the folksy Brits, whose music has helped hippies and punks put aside grievances and become friends for many years. You'd think that after twenty-two years they'd be running out of steam, but they're most definitely not! They're still giving it 100%, with an unshakeable attitude to the political landscape and the human condition that works equally well at a daytime protest rally or late in the evening at a candlelit pub surrounded by friends.
The slower tracks, while not as fervent, give you time to reflect and find perspective; the conviction is certainly still there. Brighton still rocks.
