domino does it again

Domino's latest find hits yet another bright note in the label's already stellar '09 campaign. It's the English outfit Wild Beasts and their soon to be released album Two Dancers; a surefire best of '09 when it's all said and done to be sure. Rich, robust, dead serious, but with an energetic touch, Wild Beasts recall impressive touch stones if you go digging for them. Right now it's The Veils and Arctic Monkeys that pop eagerly to mind as the record runs through.

Shot as elegantly as the song accompanying it, the video for "All the Kings Men" meets the band's archaic back beat with an appropriate storyline and filmed aesthetic. Here we see the band, bare foot, draped in robes, howling to the chorus, and building a mighty pyre. Elsewhere, sun leaks from the day on a trio of beautiful muses. They too are assembling something...torches. Suddenly, a thought. What if we get these two groups together? Well, certainly there's going to be one hell of a party to be had. - David Pitz
