Tom Vek - A Chore

Honestly, I had never heard of this guy before today, but stumbled across this today, listened to it this morning and the video (directed by Ollie Evans of videos from Klaxons, Foals, Noisettes, Gossip) the song and the girl/guy in the video haven't really left my head since. What do we think?
Apparently set to do well in 2005, Vek disappeared. Until now, where I and his 26000-odd views in the last 3 days have rediscovered him. Perturbingly mind-catching.

Arctic Monkeys - Don't Sit Down 'cause I've Moved Your Chair

So this is the new Arctic Monkeys, Don't Sit Down 'cause I've Moved Your Chair. Personally I've found, much like Kanye, the Arctic Monkeys have moved in out of being cool and not so cool. They're definitely on the money here. Everything seems to remind me of The Doors recently, but there is a definite melodic drone to Alex Turner's lyrical madness that requites itself to Riders on the Storm and L.A. Woman in general.
Put some aviators on, add a little barely American swag and "wear your shellsuit on Bonfire Night" then we're all good. Bloody love it. Point proven by the fact I've been listening to it on repeat all day.
