Last Night: British Sea Power shows "Who's In Control" on Letterman

on March 22, 2011, 8:33am

The trustworthy rockers British Sea Power stepped back into the limelight and showed their politick on Letterman last night, blasting out “Who’s In Control” from their January release Valhalla Dancehall. Forgoing some of their obtuse post-rock sound found lurking on their latest album was a good call for national television, as BSP delivered a sturdy, guitar-heavy performance. Their normally nonpartisan aesthetic gave way to an anti-establishment jam packed with chugging guitars, swelling volumes, and a call for protests to have more sex appeal. I agree with all of these things.

BSP inaugurates their US voyage tonight in Brooklyn at The Music Hall of Williamsburg. Check out the rest of the dates below.
