Wild Beasts “Present Tense” (2014)

This quick review is long overdue. Thanks for kickstarting the blog again, Stu…

Each successive Wild Beasts album gets better than the last. This one, at first, sounds subdued. But underneath all the beautifully layered sound is a majesty and authority. You can sense that at any moment, they can unleash the full breadth of their power. But they don’t for the sake of our feeble minds’ inability to comprehend their genius. It has been in fairly constant rotation all Summer, and continues to mesmerize the musical dolt in me.

Oh, and it sounds phenomenal on headphones.
