See, this Last Shadow Puppets record is fantastic, right? Like, this summer's breezy sixties-style pop record you can't stop playing, in the manner of last summer's God Save the Clientele.
It's Alex, the singer from Arctic Monkeys (whom I never really gave a toss about), and his friend Miles from a band called the Rascals.
