You should be talking about: Arctic Monkeys

But you aren't, according to the sales of the British indie rock band's last two albums, which are among the <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PLGEO000005" title="Britain" href="/topic/international/britain-PLGEO000005.topic">U.K.'s</a> fastest selling. Is it the cockneyed accents? The British slang? I don't get it, so I encourage you to check out their latest "Humbug," which is louder -- Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme worked on a number of tracks -- and yet more atmospheric than the band's previous discs. ("Humbug" was not, by the way, named for Scrooge but for a British candy that's hard on the outside and soft in the middle. Aww.) (Tuesday)
