It Came From WTF: The Arctic Monkeys Hurt Our Brains

We were lucky enough to be invited to a listening party for the new Arctic Monkeys album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, last month at a swank recording studio. We kind of weren't allowed to talk about it, but given that Domino has just posted the new video for comeback single "Brianstorm" on YouTube, we guess we can now?

First the album:

1. There's a song that sounds like Belle & Sebastian "down the chip shop" or something
2. It sounds like they've acquired a double-kick drum
3. It's good.

Secondly, the video:

1. Is there a David Lynch in the house? Perhaps the Monkeys have moved on from Saturday Night and Sunday Morning as cinematographic inspiration and onto Twin Peaks?
2. We're sure the dancing ladies are some sort of allegory to the band's international pop success and how the fame machine chews you up and so on and so forth, but it was all a bit flashy and seizure-inducing, no?
3. We kind of like this video
4. But we miss the fat one.

Favourite Worst Nightmare is out we-can't-remember-when-but-we're-sure-it's-in-April on Domino, who we're sure you'll agree are killing it, what with just having signed Bonde do Role. Prize!

I'm fully jealous that you got to listen. Also, I miss the fat one too.
