Stop! Zoo Time!
Mystery Jets are releasing their debut album in the US today, entitled Zootime. You may remember Mystery Jets from us telling everyone and their mother about then sometime in 2005. Shit was wild. "You Can't Fool Me Dennis" was our #1 single of 2005, and with good reason: the band's gypsy-pop good vibes makes life seem OK for the time of a song, until reality sets in and the unmovable black cloud that surrounds our existence engulfs us once again. Cheery!
Here are some MP3s off of Zootime (which we think is basically the same as their UK debut Making Dens, only slightly fudged with):
Mystery Jets - Diamonds in the Dark
Mystery Jets - The Boy Who Ran Away
