I could waste your time and mine by telling you all about Kills Birds’ new album Married. I could tell you about how Dave Grohl – yes, THAT Dave Grohl – had them record it on the same sound desk that Nirvana recorded Nevermind, or that the band count the likes of Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Paramore’s Hayley Williams among their avid fans.

I could tell you that opener Rabbit is a snarling, eyeball-rattling whirling dervish and that the album barely misses a step in the 10 tracks that follow, masterfully delivering euphoric knuckledusters to the gut, blow after blow after blow. But I won’t. Instead I’m just going to tell you to go and listen to this bewitchingly crafted, stunningly vital piece of work.
