"The Division of Labour" is the seventh album from Naevus.
Four years in the making, The Division of Labour is the most sharply focused Naevus thus far, uniting the classic acoustic guitar-based sound of Naevus with slabs of post-punk (‘Idiots’), searing stabs of guitar noise (‘Hobo Placing’), psychedelic introspection (‘Donkey’s Trough’) and even a glimpse of the drum machine-based sound of the earliest Naevus recordings (‘Song in Suspension’).
Performed and produced solely by Naevus founder Lloyd James, and featuring compositional contributions from Raffaele Cerroni (Mushroom’s Patience), Hunter Barr (KnifeLadder), Ben McLees (This is Radio Silence) and Propergol Y Colargol.
The Division of Labour is the most accomplished Naevus album to date, an immaculate production that unites Lloyd James’s lyrical introspection with carefully crafted minimalist songwriting to create a unique and rewarding listening experience.
