Elbow — an English rock band that is fulfilling the promise I once heard in Coldplay, and who are consistently taking risks and embarking on songs so ambitious that U2 would do well to learn form their example — have followed up my favorite album they’ve released so far (2014’s The Take Off and Landing of Everything) with an impressive EP called Lost Worker Bee. 

Why an EP? Sounds like the band is involved in a variety of side projects, including a solo debut for lead singer Guy Garvey (mentioned here).

Here’s my favorite track on the EP — which sounds like they owe Brian Eno a credit just for inspiration. Thanks to Daniel Melvill Jones for waking me up to this sneaky little release.
