'The Night Patrols (A Man Asleep)' doesn't really fit any categorization except perhaps "alternative", which is pretty meaningless. You can pluck out elements of soul, of indie, of electro-pop, of krautrock... of lots of things. So unless we grab a thesaurus an come out with a load of mumbo-jumbo then it's difficult to describe the music we're hearing. So it's lucky that this whole internet thing allows us to embed streams and videos so that you can listen to the songs yourself. Bradford Fox features in the video below, so take a listen, see if you can spot him, and then do what every NME journalist dreams of: come up with a ridiculous new genre name so that you can feel all self-important, and leave it in the comments box below. We'll start, and we'll call it "music".
