Garbage have somehow weathered ten years of fitful hiatuses and pulled it together long enough to make a new album, the first since 2005’s Bleed Like Me.  It’s hard to know where this iconic post-grunge band fits into the contemporary music landscape but if Big Bright World is any indication, they’re not ready to go gentle into that good night. It’s a stadium rock song with pop underpinnings, thankfully not as sex goth theatrical as their early hits, but epic and confident. Shirley Manson’s voice still has a touch of the po-faced nineties riot girl about it, but what can you do – her voice is Garbage.
