Vinyl Love: Beneath the Skin

Beneath the Skin by Of Monsters and Men

In three words: poetic, moody, emotive

Favorite tracks: Empire, Human, Wolves Without Teeth

Of Monsters and Men are probably one of my favorite bands of the past 10 years. They manage to make albums that are cohesive, with a very distinctive sound, but without having every song sound identical. I'm also a sucker for unique voices. I'm always a little nervous before a sophomore album release for a band whose debut I loved, but I had no reason to be hesitant here. Beneath the Skin feels like a natural progression--true to the original sound, but with a different, somewhat darker feel. And paired with the warmth of vinyl? Bliss.
