John Grant is Great

While I wait with butterflies for the release of The National’s new album, to allow me to work, I’ve be listening to John Grant (inbetween bouts of Japandroids, Camera Obscura, Kurt Vile and Youth Lagoon) if you never heard The Czars you missed out. But no need to over worry. His Queen of Denmark from 2010 is class. Its direct simple melodies are almost pub sing-along at times and yet his lyrical range and directness never fails to shock and amuse. Well-worth a listen. For example, his take on ex-relationships!

Why don’t you take it out on somebody else?
Why don’t you bore the shit out of somebody else?
