The Arctic Monkeys – “My Propellor” on Last Call with Carson Daly on 10/1

October 2, 2009 drainu182 1

Arctic Monkeys performed “My Propellor” off of their new album Humbug last night on Last Call with Carson Daly. The track’s not bad but I’m not sure how I feel about the rest of the album. I want to like it because it was produced by Josh Homme of QOTSA/EODM/TCV (geez thats a lot) but I’m still unsure about it. Anyways, check out the video of “My Propellor” below and share your thoughts:
