cold war kids
Yesterday, our own Tony Porter gave you all a taste of this Tuesday’s featured new release, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts by Cold War Kids, with the first official single “Miracle Mile.” As another MTIB favorite, Cold War Kids are back to present their fourth full-length album in the band’s short, nine-year career and this one is a doozy. It roars out of the gate with the aforementioned single and rolls right along with a good mix of upbeat and laid back tracks. What draws my attention most with this album is the different percussion and varying beats. Lots of claps, rattles and other technical drum bits are scattered about while they back some heavy bass and guitar riffs as well as Nathan Willet’s ever recognizable vocals. As a side note, “Water & Power” is probably my favorite after the first few listens through – some awesome keys and harmonies carry this epic track. Check it out as well as the rest of the album below, and then go buy it once you realize how good it is. Enjoy!
