MP3: The Futureheads – “Struck Dumb” from The Chaos, due June 1 on Dovecote.
I’m happy to see this band is still at it. Remember how back in the early 00s all those UK bands got influenced by the Strokes and released fun, loud, snotty rock and roll records? That was awesome. “This is fourth album shit, this is,” they claim. “The Chaos is ours.” It’s a shame the fidelity of this over-compressed 128kbps MP3 sounds like such ass; you can tell there’s a pretty good song in there.
