13 Songs, 48 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The title of Kasabian’s fifth album—which denotes its running time—may look like a larky piece of anti-branding but the band’s leader Sergio Pizzorno has said it signifies the fact it’s “a journey, not a collection of singles”. It’s a sentiment that holds with the sonic atmosphere of 48:13: a record that, from its lowercase song titles to its ravey electronica (witness the irrepressible rap-influenced wobble of “eez-eh”), successfully remoulds the Leicester outfit’s arena-sized approach.
