Click to listen to Kaiser Chiefs' album 'Start the Revolution Without Me'

After taking a three-year break from recording, former Mercury Prize shortlistees the Kaiser Chiefs have gotten busy again. Less than a year after releasing their fourth album, The Future Is Medieval, in the U.K., the band has significantly reworked the track listing for the U.S. market, retitling it Start the Revolution Without Me. The tracks toggle between the band's indie power pop and a distinct Kraftwerk/electronic influence on several tracks. Start the Revolution Without Me will be available on March 6th, but you can stream the album in full now.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
