For the official start of our SIXTH season, musician/composer/producer/instrument designer Markus Reuter brings us an album that grabbed onto his psyche as a teenager in Germany and STILL captivates him over 30 years later: 'Thunder and Consolation' by Bradford, Yorkshire band New Model Army. Led by singer/songwriter Justin Sullivan, the band creates hard-to-classify musical soundscapes that perfectly compliment Sullivan's biting lyrics about navigating one's family, finding your tribe and coming to terms with the often harsh realities of human nature:
"These tracks stretch out before me - the ones you left behind
What I want and what I feel - it's yours, yours, not mine"
