You might have just had to do a double take but that man is not a young Paul McCartney. He is Miles Kane and he is a vision in guyliner. Mr. Kane recently released this EP, following his debut solo album “Colour of the Trap.” He has a very consistent sound, so if you heard his album and liked it, you’ll like this. If he is a new act for you, he has a ’60s rock throwback appeal.

For Fans of: Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, Alex Turner

I would have dreams about Arctic Monkeys and Miles Kane making music together and those dreams finally came true in the form of S.I.A.S. b-side “Little Illusion Machine” for which Sr.Kane provided the vocals. This is one of two songs that Arctics have released under the moniker “Death Ramps” which is pretty much just the band’s edgier alter-ego. This song is everything you’d have expected from a Miles Kane and Arctic Monkeys colab. It meets somewhere between “Rearrange” and “Don’t Sit Down (Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair)” with elements of “You and I.” It is something beautiful.
P.S. Download “Electricity,” Arctic Monkey’s last song from the Suck It and See era. Ergo, the last song they release before their next album (which is on the way woo-hoo). So much Helders. So much O’Malley. So many good things.

If Miles Kane isn’t already on your radar he should be, especially if you’re into British rock or 1960’s inspired rock. And especially if you’re into good music. He’s the chap that plays along side Arctic Monkeys headman Alex Turner in The Last Shadow Puppets (among other things) and he recently released his debut album, “The Colour of the Trap.” His debut was all things stunning–shimmering rock nostalgia. He’s set to release a followup EP next month (actually, on the same day that Arctic Monkeys are releasing their final b-side from Suck It an See). My calendar is marked. But in the meantime, he released a song the other day to tide us over. It’s amazing. It left me speechless. Take a listen:
