I’m still trying to decide if it’s a great album title or total shithouse.
Early next year British Sea Power will release their long-awaited third album Do You Like Rock Music? and I cannot wait. Luckily, I don’t really have to as the band are also releasing a digital EP (I think it hits shops soonish as well) entitled Krankenhaus? which features two songs from the upcoming album as well as a few other songs from the third album sessions. Pitchfork has more details here and here.
The first track on the EP is called Atom and it marks a return of the zany guitar antics of their earlier work. This one will also feature on the album…
British Sea Power – Atom
I quite liked their second, quieter album but I must say the way Atom kicked me in the teeth the first time I heard it was very much welcome. Hopefully the band will make their way to Australian shores next year in support of Rock Music? as they are easily one of the best live bands around these days. I’m pretty sure I left a gig of their’s drenched in sweat and clutching a branch which was chucked into the crowd. Fun times.
