The Wild Beasts

If you don't like men singing falsetto, this band will likely not be for you. Quite indie rock I suppose, but some beautiful sounding songs, and both vocalists are excellent, one sounding a bit like Guy Carvey from Elbow, while the other I would compare to a male version of Kate Bush (plus an incredibly dodgy moustache). A bit vaudeville in parts, but highly enjoyable and I recommend them heartily, haven't left my ears for months now.

Thinking about it if you like Vampire Weekend, you should quite like The Wild Beasts, but I reckon the Wild Beasts are better, anyway video below for Devil's Crayon:

Hmm...I liked it. I really liked the vocals and strange lyrics. Do you recommend any other songs by them? Do you like their whole album?

The whole album is pretty great Called Limbo, Panto.

They enjoy their weird song titles, here's "Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants"

Youtube- Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants- The Wild Beasts

This was a b-side they did "Sylvia, A Melodrama"...not their best (still good) but reminds me of Jeff Buckley a bit.

YouTube - Sylvia, A Melodrama- The Wild Beasts

My favourite of there's is "His Grinning Skull" one of the best songs i've heard all year, but as I said the album as a whole is great.

A few days ago I started listening to the first video you posted, but got a phone call and then never finished it. I liked the little I heard of it though, I will have to give it another go.

Thought I would bump, since it's just been reviewed by Pitchfork and I know everyone hates Pitchey, but you still read it anyway no?

Got quite a good review anyway.
