Album Review: The Century of Self by ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead
…And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead may well be the best indie band not from The United Kingdom. As much as I love The Arctic Monkeys and The Franks, they don’t hold a candle to Trail of Dead. The band’s latest album, The Century of Self, proves they are indeed the “it” indie band to contend with.
