The next time someone tries to tell you the album format is dead, I want you to ask that person if they have listened to CHVRCHES' The Bones of What You Believe. If they say no, you can be secure in the knowledge that person has absolutely no idea what they are talking about. That does mean, however, you need to hear this album first. Believe me, you will love what you hear when you do.

Well my friends, this year's answer to "Gangnam Style" has arrived. The good news is, you don't need a translator to understand the lyrics. The bad news: once you hear "The Fox" by Norwegian duo Ylvis, it will never, ever leave your head. What does the fox say?

There are very few people who practice the art of the electric guitar that truly deserve the appellation of virtuoso when describing them.
