Brainstorm / Temptation Greets You Like A Naughty Friend
The Arctic Monkeys changed music distribution in the likes of clap your hands say yeah, and cemented for good the new distribution model. 'How do we get a piece of this?' I hope you can't. There's just not one thing I can appreciate about that system. For too long it rested on it's past success, determined not to change.
They are a perfect example of a new way of doing business, based completely on the audience. So for that I will appreciate them and support them in whatever small way, like picking up this seven inch if I ever see it in NY. Which is unlikely.
Either way this new track 'brainstorm' sounds like the other album and they are adding to an already successful set list.
One thing I really like and would steal is the mic distortion they use, it really sounds great and isn't too precious. It's that post-punk thing.
The single Brianstorm will be released on 16th April on cd, 7" and 10" formats. The single track will also be available to download on 1st April with the bundle downloads following on the official release date.
