cocteau twins Head Over Heels (180g vinyl LP, £15.75)label: 4ad
Released in late-1983, ‘Head Over Heels’ is the Cocteau Twins’ second album and features classic tracks ‘Sugar Hiccup’ and ‘Musette And Drums’. Coming not long after original bassist Will Heggie had departed the band, the chemistry between remaining members Elizabeth Fraser and Robin Guthrie was flourishing and by moving the band on from the starkness of their debut, they were now making the music that would help them define the decade ahead; her wordless, dreamlike vocals a powerful instrument over his lush, textured guitars. Using a new master created from high definition files transferred from the original analogue tape, the album is pressed on heavyweight vinyl and comes with a digital download code.
