What's cool about Constantines is that they sound like they have been living under a bar stool for like three months. "Hard Feelings" is the first single from Kensington Heights, as propulsive and unsettling as the band has ever been, scratchy-voiced and barely able to keep up with their own frantic guitars. Is it bad that every time we see buildings and an ominous looking sky we think of the end of Ghostbusters? The dudes look larger than life, shredding so hard that the camera shakes the flimsy cardboard buildings around them, which actually is not shredding that hard, but you know what we're getting at.
