Junk of the Heart
Vinyl LP pressing. 2011 release, the third album from the British Alt-Rock band. Written by The Kooks, produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Air, Belle & Sebastian), and recorded in the Sound Factory (Los Angeles) and Sarm Studios (London), Junk of the Heart sees them consolidating their position as a bona fide album band with trademark breeziness and catchy hooks. Kicking off with a dramatic breakbeat, the opening track builds across acoustic guitar and warm washes of synth before collapsing into a chorus you'll be singing for days. It shows, that despite the change in their influences, the band still have a firm grasp on how to write killer hooks and pop songs without compare.
