MP3: Royal Bangs - "Grass Helmet"
|Royal Bangs can play happier than you might think judging from this photograph.|
This track is an appetizer from the band's upcoming Flux Outside, which hits the streets in late March. Having heard it, there's some wonderful keyboard work, and an overall looseness that edges towards the pleasures of Broken Social Scene's upbeat clamor. This is the follow-up to the spry Let it Beep, which offers equally gutsy material, like "War Bells."
