Show Review

The Kooks rose to prominence in the mid-aughts with their British invasion-channeling swagger-- like bits of Beatles and other Brit-pop performers of the flower-era, slipping hand-holding and smiles into their joyful choruses. Fiercely catchy (and operating like a less severe Arctic Monkeys) they've lost none of their potency, despite a deeper connection into the era they are so often associated with. Their third studio LP Junk of the Heart is a bit more soulful, as lead singer Luke Pritchard explains in their session interview, a bit more in tune with the way pop and soul were basically married back in the early 70s. In a sunny West Side studio space, the band played three of their most contagious constructions to date-- the naturally appealing love-letter "Rosie," their latest title track "Junk of the Heart," and one of our favorites off their debut studio album "Ooh La," an alleged dedication to the late model Audrey Lindvall. Watch them jangle their way through all three, but beware... these are melodies that will glue themselves to your brain for weeks at a time, even after one listen.
