Maximo Park, Write This Down

Great recommend from my good friend Alan. I always mention him, as we share similar musical taste, and like so many times before, he knows what’s good.

UK post punk rockers Maxïmo Park’s fourth disc, The National Health, was released in the UK on June 12. Who knows when we may see it over here, which is a shame. Although they garnered my endearment with their debut, the Mercury Prize nominated A Certain Trigger, their two discs in between have been not as stellar. Good, but nothing to write home about.

Alan, however, caught wind of this before I did and gave me the heads up, and the first single Write This Down certainly delivers. I’m throwing in another solid and damn good track, Hips and Lips.

Write This Down

Hips and Lips

Bonus: from 2005, for good measure: Going Missing
