iTunes Editors’ Notes

The U.K. blues-pop trio Band of Skulls worked with producer Nick Launay on their third studio album, Himalayan. The man who sent Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Arcade Fire over the finish line and kicked new life into Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds sends these folks into deep space, turning guitars into rocketships and singers into multitracked gods and goddesses calling from the outer rings of the galaxy. The close-tracked vocals of “Brothers and Sisters” sound like they’re setting up a hippie commune on Mars, and Emma Richardson’s ethereal spy-film vocals on “Cold Sweat” suggest she’ll be working the concierge desk as a double agent. The hard, crunchy riffs of “Asleep at the Wheel” and the sustained, ringing tones of “Nightmares” have radio domination written all over them. Even the soul ballad “I Guess I Know You Very Well” turns up the fuzzboxes nastier than ever for the choruses and ends with a rust-busting guitar solo capable of working past the most stubborn kitchen clogs. 

Customer Reviews

Awesome band!

Both their previous albums were great and so is asleep at the wheel!
One of my favorite bands that deserve more credit than they get. If you're a fan of garage rock/ blues rock I recommend band of skulls. If not, listen to them anyway.

Great Band!!!

One of my favorite bands is at it again. I've already heard a few songs from this album and I can't wait to hear them rock it out with the rest. They are definitely a talented band. Rock N Roll will never die!

Kickass!

This band is grooving! Reminds me of old school Black Keys and the White Stripes.
