“Options” (Live On Leno) (Video)


    The guys from Gomez must know at this point—seven albums into their career—that they’re never going to be critical darlings. To their credit it doesn’t seem to bother them, and here they are again with Whatever’s on Your Mind to promote via this performance of “Options” on Jay Leno’s show last night (July 24). There’s a slight glam feel to the thumping backbeat, but for the most part this is the kind of rootsy wholegrain rock the band has been practicing for well over a decade now. Leno describes the band as “fantastic” in his intro, which is either a blessing or a curse (depending how you look at it) in lieu of any critical bon mots aimed at them. [via The Audio Perv]
