MKL JKSN BY MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY

Luxembourg.

What do we know about the place? You can walk round it in an afternoon. It's where all your Amazon purchases are routed through in order to avoid tax. It's lumped together with the Netherlands and Belgium in the term Benelux. And that's about it.

Well what you're missing out on in dismissing the place is a brand of post-rock all of it's own. Use that term - and what does it really mean anyway? - and you think of a spectrum from Mogwai to Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Mutiny On The Bounty veer more towards the latter on that dial, but the first release from their new album proves rather more accessible and, dare we suggest, dancey.

Additional points earned for the title, which can only be some subverted homage to BBC quiz show Only Connect.

The new album Digital Tropics is out on May 26. Follow the band on Twitter @m_o_t_b
