Musings - Depeche Mode

You know when you forget how good a record is and then you listen to it for the first time in years and it knocks you on your arse? That's what Depeche Mode's Violator is doing for me right now. So good. Sorry neighbours.

Their new record is one of my favourites of the year for sure. Who would have thought that out of all the "alternative" acts that came out of the 80s and are still around, that Depeche Mode would be the one making the least embarrassing albums?

Below is the clip for the first single from Sounds of the Universe, Wrong. It's been out for a while, so you've probably seen it already, but this post needed some sort of visual so go with it. It's a pretty good clip. Short, simple, if not sweet. Apparently the guy in the car is one of the fellows from Liars. Surely we're due to hear from them again soon too, right?
