The Futureheads – Rant

Yeah, so this is definitely my album of the year so far:

The Futureheads - Rant

If you’ve not heard it, it’s a full a capella album and features reworkings of various Futureheads tracks, as well as covers by acts as varied as Richard Thompson, Kelis and Sparks. The highlight of the album for me is their version of the traditional folk song “The Old Dun Cow”:

Having been raised on a healthy dose of folk music (thanks Mum!), it’s really refreshing to hear a contemporary act like The Futureheads do justice to a traditional standard in such an inventive way. Good effort, lads.
