After aping Springsteen and Bono, Brandon Flowers allegedly set out to write like Arctic Monkeys and MGMT for LP3. Day & Age doesn’t sound like those bands, but the vibe is more fun (thanks in part to producer Stuart Price) than that of meaningfulcore Sam’s Town. At least based on thirty second samples of each song. A true evaluation would be premature even for us, but for the impatient a single stream of ten song snippets awaits.
Day & Age is out 11/24 on Island.
