“Junk Of The Heart (Happy)” (Live On Letterman) (Video)

    When they’re at their best, Brighton, U.K.’s the Kooks can create some undeniably catchy indie rock-infused pop. And at their worst, well, things can get pretty bland. That’s why critics weren’t terribly enthusiastic about the band’s latest album, Junk of the Heart, which dropped back in September. It’s not that the record was awful or even that bad, it was just utterly inconsistent. But they did play to their jangly strengths several times on the album, such as on “Junk of the Heart (Happy).” This becomes particularly apparent when played live, like they did last night on The Late Show with David Letterman. You can watch the performance below. [The Audio Perv]
