Klaxons are no longer “Echoes”

It’s been far, far too long since we’ve heard from the indie-rave-dance-punk outfit from the UK, Klaxons. While we’ve waited four years for some new crop from the boys, the quartet have given back in kind with “Echoes”, an enveloping and spasmodic tune, that’s paired in visual form with an Egyptian desert composition of mirth and frollic. That being said, the new LP, “Surfing the void” drops this fall and come December, will no doubt be on a myriad of top albums of 2010 lists. Their US tour dates are below.
