Breton - Kensington System

Darkly intriguing audio-visual extravaganzists Breton have kept it softly softly for much of this year after a growing wave of hype in 2010, but this forthcoming half of a double A side from an album out in February (recorded in Sigur Ros' studio, whatever that adds) restates their claims. There's surging and cresting bass tones. There's progressions from dark to light. There's strutting Madchester-like assertiveness. There's electronics pushed into the red. There's a bit that sounds like the Tom Tom Club trying to play the old Rugby Special theme from memory. Pisses on Wu Lyf, obviously.
