Pick of the Week: Circles and Squares

It seems like I’ve been looking forward to Feist’s third album, Metals for ages.  So I just assumed I would highlight one of the album’s tracks for my pick of the week this week.  My plan got derailed, however, by a really funny band name.  I mean really, what hilarious genius decided We Were Promised Jetpacks would be a great name for a band?  A post-punk scottish rocker I suppose.  Anyway the point is We Were Promised Jetpacks also released an album this week.  It’s called In the Pit of the Stomach and it has a really catchy first song.  Listen to “Circles and Squares.”  Not only is it catchy, its got a nice fuzzy sound and its just bare bones rock and roll.  No synthesizers.  No frills.  Plus it’s all sung with a Scottish accent.  Enjoy!
