Ladytron 'Ladytron' LP
Their sixth album is the band’s most deﬁnitive work to date, full of catchy hooks, rousing riffs, sweeping melodies, and thick textured harmonies. Helen Marnie says, “For us, it’s like getting together with an old friend. You’ve both changed, but still have that common ground. Familiarity crossed with excitement.”
“It’s diverse and emotional,” Daniel Hunt adds. “It’s a lot heavier than our last album, Gravity the Seducer, which was an intentionally more sedate, ethereal record. The album also features guest Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura/Mixhell/ Soul wax) on drums
