The indie heroes sound reinvigorated on their best album in 17 years, a psychedelic-hued odyssey that combines poetry with a smattering of tub-thumping choruses Yes, Idlewild are very much still a thing. Though they crashed into indie consciousness with the howling but literate snarl of 1998’s 'Captain' and 'Hope Is Important', the more nuanced, cult classic '100 Broken Windows' would see the Scottish punks suddenly taken quite seriously. A couple of more mature and stately albums followed, but by the time Idlewild dropped the limp 'Make Another World' in 2007, things had changed.
