US only limited edition vinyl gatefold picture disc! It’s been a long wait but a new Killer’s album has finally appeared on the horizon, with preliminary reports suggesting they’ve dropped the fixation with English based Indie Rock n Roll to concentrate on a more homespun sound (having heard “Hot Fuss” it may surprise you to learn that they are actually Americans hailing from Las Vegas). With songs taking their cues from, amongst others, Springsteen, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, U2 and Iggy Pop this new musical offering should be ace. Universal. 2006.

On the 2006 follow-up to their wildly successful debut, HOT FUSS, the Killers’ continue their torrid affair with1980s New Wave, but manage to incorporate the sounds of that era, particularly heavy use of synthesizers, more seamlessly into the mix. This is due, at least in part, to the presence of veteran producers Flood and Alan Moulder (Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, U2), who help to make the tracks on SAM’S TOWN both brighter and edgier than earlier Killers tunes. While the Las Vegas-based act’s Britpop-influenced songs are still marked by Brandon Flower’s emotive vocals and bold synth lines, Dave Keuning’s guitar riffs are amped up on much of the record, as exemplified by the urgent single “When We Were Young,” which easily stands as one of the quartet’s finest tunes. Other highlights of this brooding album are the dramatic “Bones” and the yearning title track, songs that prove that the Killers may have unforeseen substance lurking under their carefully rendered style.
