Further Nightmares Etc

Thanks for all your comments on the Arctic Monkeys blog. Hopefully, I should have my own copy of the album in a few weeks, and I'll post something more considered than last week's effort once I've listened to it more than once. In the meantime, I figured I should allay one or two fears.

Someone called John left a comment saying, “Klaxons album is full of ugly acid noises, I hope this one is not.” It isn’t, John, don’t worry. There are some discreet keyboard atmospherics here and there, but the comparison with The Klaxons was more to do with the bright, angular energy which I think James Ford has highlighted in his production of both bands. I see something scribbled in my notes vaguely comparing “Brianstorm” to “Atlantis To Interzone”, but it’s a small detail.

Anyway, Uncut is sent around 800 CDs a month, and it’s my job to preview the best ones every day here at Wild Mercury Sound. Any thoughts, recommendations and questions are welcome. All being well, I’ll post something about the new Arcade Fire album later day. See you later.
