Recently, we cannot stop listening to Two Dancers, the second record from the Leeds quartet Wild Beasts, due out in the states on September 8 from Domino Records! Those falsetto vocals from guitarist/singer Hayden Thorpe meld so well the bands killer beats and head-nodding jams.
When I first checked out the video for the bands track “Hooting and Howling” , I was left a little uneasy…being underwater for a long time kind of freaks me out, and these boys are under there for a long time (instruments and all!). I simply love this track, but the video makes me feel like I’m shoveling coal in the bowels of the Titanic…after the whole iceberg thing.
Wild Beasts will be playing 3 shows in the U.S., all of which NYC on September 8-11, which happens to be the record release weekend…makes me want to scrape up my change and board a plane to JFK.
The Arctic Monkeys dropped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday to play their amazing first single “Crying Lightning” off of their new record. Humbug comes out on Domino Records on August 25. The boys from the UK will be hitting the road in the US and Canada throughout September and October!
Note: There seems to be no sign of P. Diddy in this video…
As you surely know by now, the Arctic Monkeys new album, Humbug
drops in the states on August 24th, and they will also be hitting up a lot of US cities from August to October. But, in the present, they’ve debuted the video for “Crying Lightning”, a rather murky affair with the band performing on a boat. Also, they’ll be performing new track from the new album on a webcast on Thursday, July 30 at 9PM GMT.
