A few days ago NYC-based band released their new album Wide Awake! that is on heavy rotation when I find the time for music right now. Listening to their former releases that were sometimes hard to listen they made their masterpiece with this record. Seldom listened to a record that has so much influences from the last decades and creating a very unique but also different sound. Adapting the Dutch way of playing football in the early 70's and making a punk-styled song has some kind of belting.
That they listended to Joe Strummer you can hear in Tenderness a song Franz Ferdinand would die for.
Taking Talking Heads by the times of Remain In Light and leading them to a Mutant Disco in NYC is impossible? They did - and they did it well.
