Sleaford Mods with Private Room

It’s easier to describe Sleaford Mods than to do them justice. The Nottingham duo (vocalist Jason Williamson and musician Andrew Fearn) crack as wise as Ian McShane’s profane saloon keeper in Deadwood or the Fall’s Mark E. Smith circa “The Classical,” but they dance around recognizable categories, like hiphop, post-punk, agit-pop, and dub—they’re all of these things at once. And unlike some duos, they eschew attempts to fill out their sound. The new record, English Tapas, has no fat on its frame but rests on floorboard-rattling bass lines that evoke ESG and the Pop Group. If David Thewlis’s garrulous geezer in Mike Leigh’s Naked had a favorite band—and if the Williamson-Fearn combo had been around in 1993—it would be Sleaford Mods. KATHY FENNESSY
