1. Espionage 2. Decompose 3. Disarray 4. Manipulation 5. Antidote 6. Solace 7. Doubt And Comply 8. Compliance Preoccupations songs have always worked through themes of creation, destruction and futility and theyve always done it with singular post-punk grit. The textures are evocative. The wire is always a live one. While that darker side may have been expertly explored, its not quite the same as having been fully, intensely lived. This time it was and the result is New Material, Preoccupations deepest and most fully realized record to date. In it lies the difference between witnessing a car crash and crashing your own, between jumping into an ocean and starting to swallow the water.
