EDITORS’ NOTES

“I’m a big fan of the local library,” British Sea Power singer/guitarist Yan declares on the opening track of the band’s fourth album, reinforcing their dedication to unearthing esoteric historical subject matter. But the post-punky UK ensemble are also masters of rousing, direct-hit anthems: “Who’s in Control” and “Stunde Null” are nervy rockers powered by needling guitar riffs, propulsive backbeats, and shout-it-out group choruses; “Mongk II” and “Living Is So Easy” downshift into motorik synth-pop without sacrificing the grandeur.
