Listening Post

It's cause for rejoice that one of the best and most ambitious albums of the year so far is from a straight-up, old fashioned punk band.

Fucked Up's David Comes To Life is startlingly epic in scope, a treatise on love, violence and loss divided into four separate acts -- but don't for a second let that fool you into thinking that it means the band has strayed from its hardcore roots.

Here's the first video from the album, and it's as exhilarating and wildly imaginative as the record itself.

This is Queen of Hearts.
