Art Brut 

Art Brut vs. Satan (Fontana)

These slap-happy lovers of post-punk scrappiness have found a most unlikely kinship in producer (ex-Pixies) Black Francis, who tightens up the band's sound while simultaneously retaining its slackerish mantra. With songs about The Replacements (the band, not the movie), DC Comics, not learning to drive and having a song stuck in your head, there is an honesty, humour and Modern Lovers-esque frankness that extends deeper than the sing-speak delivery and just-figured-out sloppy guitar chunks.
