MP3 OF THE WEEK: The Airborne Toxic Event – Does This Mean You’re Moving On? mp3

“From the balcony you call my name, I see you standing in the rain, your words so dry, your face so wet, a broken heart, but it hasn’t happened yet”

The Airborne Toxic Event is perhaps an ill-advised moniker for this Californian band, but ‘Arctic Monkeys’ sounded pretty awful when I first heard it.  When listening to this song I get the feeling to jump around more than a Kangaroo on a pogo-stick.  The super-catchy repetition of words means the song will instantly get stuck in your head like a badly wielded dart.  The sound recalls New-Yorkers The Strokes, but this song is much more fun, which is probably down to all that L.A. sunshine.
