Arctic Monkeys, Brick By Brick.

In typically understated fashion, Brick By Brick, the first glimpse into the Arctic Monkeys-shaped void of the past eighteen months or so seeped out surreptitiously onto t'interweb a moment or two ago. Whilst the track itself is far from an instant classic, it sees the Sheffield troupe rooting themselves forever more firmly in the past, swirling psychedelic guitars and copious distortion powering the track that sounds beefier than a burger comprised of diced Josh Homme at points, whilst getting away with Austin Powers-esque pastiche at others. Welcome back, Alex Turner et al.
