The Arctic Monkeys Also Remember The '90s
The Arctic Monkeys' Record Store Day single--one of many that will be released during this Saturday's retail-orgy festivities, about which more as the day approaches--will have as its A-side "Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair," a moody, hung-over track that sounds like it's been festering under a desk somewhere since mysteriously dropping out of an alt-rock station's playlist sometime in 1996. Of course, that just makes it a bit grouchier. Stream it after the jump, if you're one of those "try before you buy" types.
"Chair" will be on the band's RSD 7-inch with "Brick By Brick," which tries to straddle the line between cock-rock and garage-rock and almost succeeds (although it's nearly torpedoed by a middle segment that sounds alarmingly inspired by the Doors).
