Luke Pritchard and a few of his band mates from The Kooks
drop in on Baeblemusic at Industria Superstudio on the west side of Manhattan, bringing a silky batch of fawning, love songs from The Kooks most recent release
, Junk of The Heart
and plenty of thoughts concerning the feeling that finds them in this city and the songs he and his band chose to play. If this is your first encounter with The Kooks, some of the artists who have had a creative impact on the English outfit might seem surprising. Sam Cook, LCD Soundsystem, Air...we wish you luck in spotting them hiding in the folds of these acoustic renditions. But we're confident our sparse and sprightly sesh will spark an immediate interest in the band's complete catalogue. Check out our extended interview with Luke and then get to work on the band's hum dinging collection of albums.
