Arctic Monkeys

british indie rock

This Sheffield four-man rock group has a large devoted following in Britain and their sound is slowly encroaching on the American music elite. Nearly all the tastemakers in this Guardian piece and KCRW’s illuminatae Nic Harcourt are feeling their sound. The Arctic Monkey’s music is likened to the Libertines and The Jam, and the boys themselves enjoy Roots Manuva and Pharaoh Monch. But don’t be mistaken, their music is straight-up rock and many expect them to be the Next Big Thing. You decide.
Shithot indie rock, witty lyrics and a dash of modesty.

    this is a cheap way of sending a message to Paul, it has nothing to do with Artic Monkeys… except that I think the name is freakin sweet.
    Paul, is there a reason why you aren’t listed in iTunes’s podcast directory? legal stuff?

    I don’t like this at all, actually. Sounds like the Walkmen but slightly poppier. I’ve heard to many bands that sound like this recently.
