Harlem 'Shakes' the Arctic Monkeys

The other day I was listening to my mp3 player and one of those new Arctic Monkeys songs came on. I can't recall which one, but then that may be due to the fact that they are all beginning to sound like the first album. Now this is the important bit, right after that new Monkeys song my player queued up a song by the Harlem Shakes. I already knew this was a good band and after "Sickos" began to play (and it kicked the ass of the Arctic Monkeys track) I thought to myself 'I've gotta tell people about this band... again'. Here's my review of their EP Burning Birthdays and here's what they sound like. And to put it simply this band isn't good they're goddamn great.
