From their upcoming album Shape of the Shape, due for release on 27th October 2009.

Starless and Bible Black “On their Sophomore release, The Shape of the Shape, Manchester, England’s Starless & Bible Black have drawn together the sounds of ‘70s Topanga Canyon country-rock, ‘80s Mancunian jangle, and space-age psych tinged drones to make a dynamic, warm and woodsy second album.

Recorded at Bryn Derwen within the wilds of the Snowdonian mountains, and during all night sessions in the relative tranquility of their local village hall, Shape Of The Shape is an album of contrasting styles, themes and approaches that coheres beautifully into a seamless entity.

We get guided through verses and choruses of swamp rock, gothic bluesy chanson and smoky acoustic ballads, as well as a jazz-folk tinged instrumental — after all, the band take their name from the classic 1965 Stan Tracey cut — but the apogee of this collection is the driving drone-choral opus, Les Furies – sung in French, this is a very Gallic observation of after hours culture. And while this album traverses all these different styles, the band never deny the importance of a fine tune and a fine song.” [IODA]
