ART BRUT

Art Brut Vs. Satan

(Downtown)



On their third album of smartass Britrock, Art Brut riff on things that rock their world, including alcoholism, breakfast cereal, public transportation, and the Replacements. Frontman Eddie Argos still sounds like he’s choking back chuckles underneath his thick accent, but the rest of the band shows off tight new chops, tearing through the brief songs (most clock in at less than three and a half minutes) with previously unheard assurance. Yet Art Brut Vs. Satan sounds a lot like Bang! Bang! Rock ‘N’ Roll and It’s A Bit Complicated. And the 11 songs here pretty much roll into one long wink at hipsters. But even hispters need to laugh once in a while too. –Michael Gallucci
