Arab Strap's dark and brooding, while feeling inviting. It's a bit like a warm blanket on a cold night. Track one --The Turning of Our Bones-- begins with some guitar work thats reminicent of System Of A Down, which ramps up to some LCD Soundsystem style beats, and then a Scottish brogue comes in and caries you down the river.
I really dug this one. It was a case of an early lead turning into a solid first place slot.
