It's a bit of a grower, but Art Brut's latest album, Art Brut vs. Satan, proves to be a totally solid addition to the band's fine catalog of sharp, smart-alecky pop rock 'n' roll. Frontman Eddie Argos is on again about being broke, working shit jobs, and listening to too much music. And the band, here recorded by Frank Black of the Pixies, sounds as effortlessly tight as ever. They're unbelievably fun live, and tonight's show is part of the Noise for the Needy concert series benefiting Transitional Resources, so it's for a good cause.
