Today's "Best Song Ever"

The Futurheads "Skip To The End"

This song is stunningly warm do to it's large expanses of space within it's main riff. The almost AC/DC like propulsion of the song is an interesting context for the Futureheads' barbershop vocals.

Basically the Futurheads have made one of the best big rock albums of the year so far. This is encouraging as this year has been mostly on an artier tip and those who have tried to make big rock albums (The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) are having trouble holding my attention for more than a few weeks.

Download, Listen, Discuss.
