After a decade in the wilderness, David Berman has returned to record-making – this time around as Purple Mountains, leaving his iconic Silver Jews brand to history. Fortunately for all the fans, he’s retained his iconic songwriting style, with a new batch of tunes conveying an astonishing variety of 21st-century mid-life crises. Featuring full-on technicolor production intervention from Woods’ Jarvis Taveniere and Jeremy Earle, Purple Mountains debut stands tall among Berman’s classic albums, with knee-slappers and eye-wipers alike – ten new tracks ready to go into suffering jukeboxes across the land.
