Axes is the third album by English rock group Electrelane. For the mostly instrumental album, Electrelane once again returned to Steve Albini's studio in Chicago. In the first recording session for Axes, the band played through the entire album in one take. This reflected the band's desire to have listeners experience the band's live show. Emma Gaze explained the album was recorded "the way we rehearse and practise: we all stand in a circle and it is very relaxed.

Though it arrives only a little over a year after the radiant The Power Out, Electrelane's third album Axes is a very different beast than their previous effort.

To be fair, Axes does have a handful of tracks that expand on what Electrelane did on The Power Out: "The Bells" is a lovely track built on a Krautrock pulse and alternately pounding and rippling pianos and topped with pretty but not overly sweet vocals from Verity Susman and company; its ebb and flow make it one of the band's best.

Axes is the third album by English rock group Electrelane. This reflected the band's desire to have listeners of the album experience the band's live show.

Which gives us Axes: Thirteen largely instrumental tracks that see these women plowing happily into the groove. The routine's as simple and chic as always, starting slow and then building up into a race. Electrelane-as-pop fans may miss Susman's voice when she hops behind the piano or the harmonium and puts time in on arranging the album's textures.

Electrelane brought in renowned producer Steve Albini to record their second album, The Power Out, while production was still handled by the band. The result was an album that added more vocals and structure to the songs, giving them almost pop-like vibes. It was released on Too Pure in February 2004. For their follow up, the mostly instrumental Axes, Electrelane once again returned to Steve Albini's studio in Chicago.

Electrelane is a bit of an oddity in British indie rock. Now, a little more than a year later, Electrelane returns with Axes, an album that still retains the Velvets, Wire and Can influences, but in somewhat different proportions. And though vocals aren’t as ubiquitous on this set, they aren’t absent either, showing up whenever the band feels the need to augment their punky post-rock.
