It’s been an exciting week for Wild Beasts whose superb record Present Tense came out this week to much acclaim (it’s easily one of the year’s best). To ease us into the weekend we have an incredible 8 minute reworking of Wanderlust by The Field. Listen above…
Wild Beasts excellent new record Present Tense is out this week. The album continues their incredible streak of quality, and this one is perhaps their best yet. That alone gives plenty of listening for the week, but if you want to dig a little deeper then this Wild Beasts mix for FACT will help you get there - some superb choices, including Kate Bush’s take on Sexual Healing.
Wild Beasts are busy preparing for the release of their highly anticipated 4th record Present Tense. They played at this year’s Eurosonic and played an acoustic version of a new tune Mecca. Watch the sparse version above and don’t miss out on tickets to see them at o2 Brixton Academy.
