Track of the Week 2010: #36

The Answering Machine – Animals

So, is this the doozy that I mentioned last week? Erm, well actually no. I've not posted about that because, frankly I've not had the energy. The song in question was 'Fuck You' by Cee-Lo Green (the voice of Gnarls Barkley) and has pretty much gone viral anyway. I suggest you check it out.

No, the track that's made this week's blog post is a sample of the forthcoming second album by The Answering Machine, a band whose debut I named the 11th best album of last year. So eagerly am I anticipating their return that I'm naming 'Animals' this week's Track of the Week, having only heard the following 36 second sample. A bit presumptuous perhaps but I've great faith in the band, and the sample of this is killer. Spiky and epic, it has all of the ingredients that made Another City, Another Sorry such a treat.

Said new album, Lifeline, is due in the new year. 'Animals' should land in October. (I can't seem to find any confirmation of these dates however)
