Kentucky's Cage The Elephant have named their latest album after the fear of music. Seeing as most people that know that won't be able to listen to it, it is somewhat irrelevant but interesting nonetheless.

Why be afraid? Melophobia is another collection of dirty, bluesy rock 'n' roll. As single "Come a Little Closer" showed, Cage The Elephant have moved even further into the camp of bands like The Black Keys and The Kills (Alison Mosshart guests on one track), making broody, earnest rock music.

It can be a little sombre ("Telescope"), a little raucous ("Black Widow"), and sometimes rough around the edges ("Teeth"), but is consistent throughout and, despite the philosophical title, not in the least bit scary. (www.cagetheelephant.com)
