When The Maccabees blew onto the scene in 2007 I was caught in their storm. Their debut LP Colour It In was what The Futureheads’ second album should have been and I loved them for it. Orlando Weeks voice has a specific vulnerable urgency that when coupled with their propulsive guitar rock works magic on me. It seems that most people know them for their single “Toothpaste Kisses” which is unfortunate because it always seemed like the token mellow filler among an LP packed with rock. Anyway, enough praise for their debut, its time to give some love to their recently released follow-up,Â Wall Of Arms. I have had Wall it on repeat all day and haven’t skipped one track. ItÂ is smart, sharp, fast, tight, and most importantly, it is out now. The fantastic lead single “Love You Better” (above) and my fave (not easy to choose) “Can You Give It” (below) will give you a good idea of what you are in for when you make the smart decision to pick this one up.
