The Kooks


These once-buzzy Brits have a new one due in September called Junk of the Heart, which may or may not have been inspired by a song of that title from the Cardigans’ totally underrated Gran Turismo. Revving up the hype machine once more, the Kooks hit the U.S. this month for tastemaking shows in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Know who I really wanna see again, though? The Cardigans.
