Filthy Dukes – Messages (Ft. Tommy Sparks) / Removed by label request.

Apparently Filthy Dukes have been grabbing blog headlines for months now but I only stumbled upon them yesterday when Silence-Killer recommended them (pick up 2 remixes there). Not one to discount a trusted source, I picked up the album… and then had a lot of trouble putting it down. “Messages” follows “This Rhythm” as the latest single off their debut LP, Nonsense In The Dark, and although it drips with pop appeal, it’s accessibility fits perfectly into the mix of darker and grittier electro on the album. I could go on forever about how awesome each track is but I’ll just let you go buy it and hear for yourself. I will, however, rave about just one more, the album’s title track featuring The Maccabees’* lead singer Orlando Weeks. For some reason this guy’s voice just gets me every time. “Nonsense In The Dark” is six and a half minutes of pure ecstasy, starting slow and building instrument after instrument over Weeks’ fantastic crooning. I think it’s time I stop talking and you start listening. Enjoy. I am.

    Great review. I’ve been avoiding The Maccabees after disliking a few songs, but on your recommendation, I suppose I’ll try again.
