Check Out: Art Brut’s “Alcoholics Unanimous”

on March 03, 2009, 10:10am

With Art Brut on the verge of releasing its latest album, the Frank Black produced Art Brut v. Satan (US May 12th via Downtown Records), the angry British post-punkers have offered an early taste in the form of a single entitled “Alcoholic Unanimous,” a song about…pretty much what its title suggests.The angry lament for “bad decisions” and being “up all night” drinking is accompanied by a pretty literal video (no it’s not one of those literal version videos). Simply put, it’s a raucous ode to getting rid of a bad hangover. Shocker, Art Brut made an entertaining song!

The song is available for download, along with said video for one week only over at Pitchfork. Additionally, “Just Deserts”, a b-side from the forthcoming record is available for a similar “one week only” download over at RCRDLBL. Covers more your thing? Art Brut’s got you covered on that front as well thanks to a recently unveiled rendition of The Cure’s “Catch”.
