New EP From We Were Promised Jetpacks

Somewhat buried in a strong week of new releases is 'The Last Place You'll Look' from We Were Promised Jetpacks. Out on Fat Cat Records, the five-song EP is a must for fans of the Scottish quartet. A few of the song titles may seem familiar from last year's acclaimed album 'These Four Walls' (my No. 9 album of 2009), but I can assure you these are very different versions. The band is often compared to the tight but spastic sounds of Futureheads, but they won't be this time. This collection is slow, lush and beautiful. You can give all of the tunes a listen here at Fat Cat.

'The Last Place You'll Look' Tracklist
1. A Far Cry
2. Short Bursts (Alternate Version)
3. The Walls Are Wearing Thin
4. With The Benefit Of Hindsight
5. This Is My House, This Is My Home (Alternate Version)
