Listen Up! No. 54: Brandon Flowers - The Clock Was Tickin'

The only cut worth your attention from Flowers' solo debut, Flamingo - an overwhelmingly tedious, regressive mix of synth-pop and heartland-rock, where you're never more than a chord change away from knowing exactly where you are. And despite what the lyrics protest, it's not Las Vegas. Unsurprising then that this thoughtful, melancholic country-rock number failed to make the final cut, and is tacked on as a 'bonus'. Bonus indeed.
