The Music Slut


Maximo Park Ready Up Album #2

It will be titled Our Earthly Pleasures and will see the light of day 4/2 (in the UK, no word yet for the Stateside release date). Here's more from NME:

Singer Paul Smith said of the record: "Thanks to two years of touring the world and with the contribution of Gil Norton, 'Our Earthly Pleasures' is a heavy, eye-opening record. It's rock music without the clichés, dealing with the world on an emotional level. Ultimately we want to reach as many people as possible because we feel this record has the ability to inspire and affect people."

The full tracklisting for the album is:

'Girls Who Play Guitars'
'Our Velocity'
'Books From Boxes'
'Russian Literature'
'Karaoke Plays'
'Your Urge'
'The Unshockable'
'By The Monument'
'A Fortnight's Time'
'Sandblasted And Set Free'
'Parisian Skies'

Is it just me or does it seem as if most of these titles alone are foreshadowing a lackluster follow-up? I surely hope I'm wrong though, A Certain Trigger had a certain swagger to it that I truly enjoyed.

In other news, if you haven't already heard, most of the Coachella band list has been leaked and it includes Rage Against The Machine, Air, Bjork, Crowded House, The Arcade Fire, Interpol and a slew of others, check out BV for all the info!
