Arctic Monkeys – AM – 180gram vinyl – MP3 download card
From ‘nevermind the bollocks’ Britswagger to more introverted observations of urban rockstar life, this Arctic Monkey release is driven by self-conscious consumption of lyrics, women, rock n roll, hotels and the whole shebang, with this as the soundtrack. It is good, aware and knowingly rock-funky with a view to the stadium style they have evolved into. If you’re a Monkeys fan, welcome aboard for the journey – in the Band bus with you are Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age guest vocalist on ‘Knee Socks’), John Cooper Clarke (80s punk poet, lines used in ‘I wanna be yours’).
