EDITORS’ NOTES

Despite long being the standard-bearers for a swaggering, Gallagherian brand of British rock—they even supported Oasis on their final tour—Kasabian have always been comfortable letting their freak flag fly. Fourth record Velociraptor! may be the tidemark for this restive experimentalism, featuring hungry attacks on everything from strutting disco (“Re-Wired”) to Serge-fronted neo-psych (“La Fée Verte”). And then there’s “Switchblade Smiles”: a bomb-blast of nocturnal electronica and floor-shaking percussion that’s comfortably one of their biggest (and strangest) bangers.
