the sophomore album (and only six years later) from the enigmatic and elusive 30 year old londoner tom vek. having paved the way for the likes of friendly fires, the rapture and metronomy with his astounding 2006 debut 'we have sound' tom has been away working on his dazzling return 'leisure seizure' which features brand new single 'a chore' and forthcoming 'aroused' and 'world of doubt'. don't expect any massive change of style either - mr vek drops another set of sure-fire gold all wrapped around the kind of drums james brown would have been proud of. that dead-pan delivery adds some killer rhythm all of it's own while each song builds around the catchiest of loops, hooks and melodies. it's nice to have him back.
