Album artwork for Serotonin by Mystery Jets

there had to be a feeling that after they were dropped from label sixsevenine back in 2008, mystery jets would never fly high again. but in short order, the band has picked itself up and is feeling really good. so much so, in fact, that they called their new album 'serotonin'. the album (the first for rough trade) is a modern day pop masterpiece, recorded at london's british grove studios with production by chris thomas, who has also produced uk heavyweights like pulp, the beatles, and pink floyd. standouts are opening track 'alice springs' which is like a prime and punchy early 90's pulp hit single, 'flash a hungry smile' which has roxy music written all over it but with a great whistling hook and 'too late to talk' which is a gentle and emotional ballad with stunning harmonies. every listen brings something new to the party.
