New Old Arctic Monkeys

UPDATE: Web Sheriffed!! Here is the legit video for their tune which has been circulating for a bit "Crying Lightning." All comments below on Alex Turner still apply.

Fist pump to our UK friends on hipping us to the new song "My Propeller" from the Arctic Monkeys. It's truly heartening to see these kids continue to develop over the course of their records. Ok, well, it's mostly songwriter Alex Turner that's developing -- but still that's all that really matters. It was clear from the beginning that Turner had the talent and know-how to prevent the Monkey's from being a flash-in-the-pan fad. Here's to hoping he can keep it up.  Domino releases the Arctic Monkey's third album Humbug on August 25. They are also in NY this weekend for All Points West.
