Did anyone see them this week?
I've seen them twice this year now, and have been really, really impressed. Super-tight, confident and livelier than ever before. They realy seem at the top of their game, in live terms. 'Lights' from the new album is an absolute snorting monster in live form.
Of course their sonic palette hasn't expanded much, and, let's get it out the way early, they haven't scaled the heights of the debut, but I'm glad to see one of my favourite bands of the last 10 years looking so strong.
