Out Soon: Maxïmo Park - Our Earthly Pleasures
Overall it's probably a little more downbeat than its predecessor, with a lot more piano throughout, but luckily frontman Paul Smith's lyrics have improved so much that its never a problem (I should note that his vocals are really quite astounding in places, the boy seems to have been practicing.) Norton's production is powerful without sounding unnatural, and I cannot WAIT to hold a real copy in my grubby indie-nerd hands. Anyway so the single Our Velocity which I posted a few weeks ago came out on Monday, and I totally recommend that if you haven't bought a copy/bought an mp3 so far that you do by tomorrow so that it gets the chart placing it deserves. Definitely the indie pop single of the year so far by a very wide margin.
Today I thought I'd post an album track from Pleasures, as well as the added bonus of the wonderful Field Music remix/reworking of I Want You To Stay (originally from the debut). The album is out on the 2nd April! Enjoy, and have a good weekend folks!
