Unsurprisingly, The Streets's new single from the album of the same name is excellent. We had our concerns when we heard he was recording with a live band, but it turns out that didn't mean Mike Skinner was embracing grindie or whatever, just doing something slightly more organic. What is not excellent is how the video reminds us that we need to pay our credit card bills which are quite large and apparently do not go away if you light them on fire. Regardless, we will find a way to purchase Mike's new record when it comes out on September 15th, and we hope that his regular website being redirected to MySpace is not a real world indicator of financial problems for the guy.
