Must Be Something in the Air, Because the Songs About Love Are Coming in Hot

SCOPE just got its hands on a 5-song promo for the Mystery Jets' upcoming album, Twenty One, and if these five songs are any indicator, boy howdy, this is gonna be one sweet piece of indie-pop magic. What's most impressive is that these songs stand so well on their own in comparison to the pop perfection that is "Flakes" (see earlier post), each one primed for hit single status. Evoking the early days (60's era) of perfectly crafted three and a half minute radio pop anthems, these tracks are sure to be the perfect companion for spring canoodling. Although potentially too sweet for much staying power, that's no reason not to drink it up while it's fresh. "Young Love" is the first single off the album, due out in March, and it puts a very sweet and romantic spin on what, in Iowa City, would usually prove to be a randy, sloppy, and regrettable encounter. Close your eyes, have a listen, and dream of warm days and pretty girls.
