New Futureheads, "The Beginning of the Twist." Oh, and R.E.M. too.

Remember when I posted earlier this week about new Futureheads music? Well, the UK group posted a full-length version of a new song, "The Beginning of the Twist," and it's EXCELLENT. Very reminiscent of the Clash, ca. "London Calling" and before, if you're into that era. All of the band's new songs sound a lot rawer and less calculated than the ones on the last album. Add 'em on MySpace and enjoy the song there.

P.S. R.E.M. also posted a thirty-second snippet of first single "Supernatural Serious" on its homepage -- the song that was known as "Disguised" on last year's bootlegs -- and it's pretty jangly. But I figured everyone is tired of me talking about the band, so. Ahem.
