Little Barrie Shadow

'Big, broad, and toasty with strong notes of black plum, fig, and mocha. Rich cocoa tinged smooth finish with balanced acidity.'
So says the Camino Steakhouse of their Alma Negra wine. Had I read the same description on a pack of a Waitrose coffee, it wouldn't sound any more believable. But used to describe Little Barrie's new album, Shadow, it's honest.
Little Barrie have matured since I last saw them at the above-a-pub venue that germinates stars, the Louisiana in Bristol. You can see them next on Tuesday 1 July, at the Purple Turtle in Camden, London. Hold that Lewis Wharton Bonneville Ride bass line in your nose and savour it. BP
