10 Songs, 48 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Little Fictions is the rather lovely sound of Guy Garvey falling in love. Written around the time of his wedding, it’s an album that swells and soars, bundling Elbow’s sound up with layers of extra warmth. But while songs like “Head for Supplies” and “Kindling” are among the prettiest they’ve written, this isn’t some saccharine record without edge. Opener “Magnificent (She Says)” is stately and bombastic, while the restless “K2” explores Britain’s exit from the European Union.
