Late of the Pier - 'Heartbeat' - Video & mp3
The pre-album single from Late of the Pier, 'Heartbeat', is arguably their weakest to date. BUT IT'S STILL BETTER THAN MOST OF THE STUFF BEING RELEASED IN THIS OR ANY OTHER WORLD RIGHT ABOUT NOW. The album's called Fantasy Black Channel, artwork to the left, which is a bit *huh?*; I was kinda expecting something like the logo variant on the right, but whatever dude.
There's another insane video right here. It features exploding heads - what more do you need to know?
And the mp3 of that very song you just heard (well, if you watched the video, with the sound on, as I presume you might possibly have done. If you haven't feel free to go back and watch it. In fact, feel obligated to, coz it's awesome, yeah?):
mp3: [mp3 removed]
(from Fantasy Black Channel, out August 11)
I think if this band wanted to, they could take over the universe. Maybe they're just too weird, but for anyone who appreciates the valued maxim that WEIRD IS AMAZING, prepare to be doubly amazed, for not only are Late of the Pier conventionally amazing, but they are also weird-ually amazing. Amazing amazing amazing...
