North American audiences criminally neglected Inside In/Inside Out, the debut offering from UK band The Kooks (check out "Ooh La" and "Seaside"). Undeterred, these Brighton boys have released their sophomore effort, Konk, that should fair better than their debut. Not much has changed between the two records: The band is still churning out the same sweet hook-riddled pop rock (think Vampire Weekend without the reggae, or a more polished, less-punk Arctic Monkeys). Hopefully, audiences will embrace tracks like "Mr. Maker," "Gap" and "Shine On," which are great representations of what these British lads have to offer.
