Heart Is A Beating Drum
Label: Domino Recording Co
Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince just couldn't stay away from each other. Since 2008's Midnight Boom, Mosshart may have had a dalliance with Jack White, but 2011's Blood Pressures sees the duo back in fine form, if not somewhat tamed. Hince even throws out a soulful ballad with "Wild Charms," Mosshart with "The Last Goodbye." But don't get us wrong, The Kills still sound like they're trapped in a grimy basement loving/hating the sight of one another -- "I love you, just not the way you want," Mosshart grumbles over grating drum machine beats and guitar licks that slither and grind.
