The Airborne Toxic Event – Sometime Around Midnight

Woooooooooo! It looks like the early part of 2009 is going to be good for music, or at least the kind of music I like to listen to. So far, there’s been the debut from White Lies, next week sees the long-overdue new Franz Ferdinand alnum, and now there’s this. I’ve been hearing this on the radio a lot, and caught the video a few times last weekend[1]. I know next to nothing about them so far, and this is the only song I’m aware of hearing by them, but if this is any indication of what they’re about, I’ll be getting the album when it comes out here, apparently next month.

And quite apart from that being a great song (nothing like a good bit of unrequited obsessive lust to make a good bit of rock, is there?), which builds nicely, you’ve got to have a soft spot for a band with such a cool name, haven’t you?
