Elbow's journey starts with this album; an atmospheric, analogue-sounding backroom haze and includes what veers towards their own take on plaintive trip-hop, occasionally peeping out of the Manchester smog.


The debut album from the Manchester band Elbow, originally released in 2001, is 11 tracks of rain-sodden misery blown up into the breed of gracefully elegiac fatalism.

+ Pressed as a double LP.

Includes the singles 'Red', 'Powder Blue', 'Newborn', 'Asleep In The Back', 'Coming Second' and the epic 'Scattered Black And Whites'. 

The album received huge critical acclaim and reaching number 14 in the UK charts. The album was nominated for that year's Mercury Music Prize which of course they would then go on to win in 2008 for their 'Seldom Seen Kid' album.

'Asleep In The Back' is home to many timeless tracks which remain firm fan favourites and make up a good proportion of their live shows to this day.

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.

You can subscribe to it via our Spotify public profile.
