Track Of The Week: Young Knives - Love My Name

Young Knives are back and are spikier than ever. Singer/guitarist Henry Dartnall has said that as much as the band wanted to take a complete left turn into Beefheart experimentalism they couldn't keep away from the pop songs. Good thing too, not only is Captain Beefheart completely overrated but Young Knives are so utterly excellent at being Young Knives and writing perfect post-punk pop.

There's not a video for 'Love My Name' yet. But that's not too important, because the band have been kind enough to upload it to youtube, even if they've not told anyone that it's there. 'Love My Name' is the first taste of forthcoming third album Ornaments From The Silver Arcade, the follow up to one of KPL's Top Albums of 2008 – the utterly underrated Superabundance. It's due out on 4th April and we can assume that the single will appear at some point before that.

Excellent and a more than welcome return.

Plus it's got 'love' in the title, so it's sorta appropriate for Valentines Day.

Also, this appears to be the artwork for the record, although there's been no confirmation of it formally.
