Dear !!!, Kaiser Chiefs and Q and Not U,
Someone new is trying to replace you. Don’t worry, they’re newbies…but it looks like they might have something going for them. It’s not that I don’t love you guys more than I love my Sambas. Lord knows that nothing makes me dance quite like Me and Giuliani or Wonderful People. But four guys from Philadelphia are making a run at the playlist of my heart. Should Hail Social’s self-titled LP (coming out on Polyvinyl) be as good as I hope, then I might slowly let them start taking over some of your rocking duties. This isn’t a threat or anything, though I know some of you have sophomore albums to think about (I’m looking at you, Kaiser Chiefs). I’m just trying to give you a heads up.
