A new Arctic Monkeys track (significantly influenced by Josh Homme) dropped earlier today on YouTube but I'm not much of a fan. Yet anyway. Conversely, this new Wild Beasts track makes me rather hopeful of their forthcoming album, 'Smother', which is out in May.
'Albatross' sounds fairly understated (especially compared to my favourite song of theirs, 'The Devil's Crayon') but that enhances its subtle haunting nature. Their record label Domino put an official stream on Soundcloud, which I've embedded below.
