Give Out But Don't Give Up

Give Out But Don't Give Up

Primal Scream offered British indie music a heady, beatific future on 1991’s Screamadelica. In a typically unpredictable U-turn, the follow-up re-casts them as ’70s southern rock specialists. On the snake-hipped boogie of “Jailbird” and “Rocks” they nail that riff-driven swamp sound, while “(I’m Gonna) Cry Myself Blind” and “Everybody Needs Somebody” pull off the harder trick of playing it slow, soulful and gorgeous. By recruiting funk godfather George Clinton for the title track though, they still add some cosmic adventure to their retro gumbo.
