Arctic Monkeys on Kimmel

You absolutely should not be sleeping on AM, the sexy and muscular new album from the ridiculously popular British rock band Arctic Monkeys; to my ears, it’s their best album since their debut. And the band has also matured into a sharp, professional live act; they hit all their marks with absolute panache. Last night, the band performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live. This was a reschedule from last week, when the much-talked-about Kanye West interview went long. And the band sounded awesome, taking over Kimmel’s outdoor stage and playing the AM single “Do I Wanna Know?” and, as an online bonus, the album track “R U Mine?” Watch both below.

AM is out now on Domino.

  1. I really like this album’s direction but I disagree with you and Rolling Stone that it’s better than Favourite Worst Nightmare. Actually Humbug may also have a few more stellar songs than AM.

  2. Kimmel’s sound is quite shitty, the sound really flattened out the songs. Particularly the drums, the drums have no presence in the mix, which completely fucks over helders’s monstrous drumming.
