The Last Shadow Puppets - The Age of Understatement

so I stumbled upon this the other day -- it's a British band called The Last Shadow Puppets, made up of a guy from Arctic Monkeys, a guy from Simian Mobile Disco and a guy from a band called the Rascals (not the ones from the 1960s).

Anyway, the album is pretty good, and you can listen to it on Pitchfork, though their review is, as usual, pretty inscrutable. It's a 1960s-sounding "baroque pop" record, i.e. lush instrumentation and such, and it reminds me of the Coral, who have a similar sound. Take a listen! The song features Owen Pallett from Final Fantasy and Arcade Fire.
