I've given The King is Dead a few runs through now.. really nice album :yes:

^Really love this song - I keep getting drawn back to it :heart:

Kind of surprised this wasn't the lead single actually, but Down By the Water is pretty strong too.

Yay, new Sparkadia song debuted on radio today :ddr:

I saw them support Little Red last year, and fell in love with this song as soon as they played it.. been waiting for it ever since.

The hook sounds a bit like Baba O'Riley by The Who :blink:

Did anyone see the cover of the new Strokes album...

This? :laugh:

Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas has posted a bizarre picture on Twitter that he claims is going to be the front cover of the band's new album.

The colourful image features a basketball player, a clown, a rainbow and a unicorn standing on a cliff-edge.

It's not 100 per cent clear if it's a joke or not.

^ :| I am suddenly a lot less enthusiastic about buying their new album. And I really like the Strokes too...

My money would be on it being a joke :ninja:

You can tell it's just an amateurish photo of a mural on a wall. But there have been worse covers..

So they've decided to use rejected Kanye West cover art for "Angles" - way to recycle, guys. ;)

Julian Casablancas = troll? :o

Having just heard the album's lead track, I'm now very much looking forward to PJ Harvey's "Let England Shake" :drool:

And what the heck, here's another Anna Calvi tune...
