UK duo Sleaford Mods are back with their new album, Key Markets, featuring Andrew Fearn's post-punk beatmaking and Jason Williamson's non-stop spew of funny, bilious words. If you've listened to their other records you probably know what to expect, but the songs are hookier and the backing tracks a bit more diverse. (There's even just a bit of what you'd almost call singing.) If you liked their other stuff, this does not disappoint -- and it's not a bad entry point for the uninitiated, either. You can stream standout "No One's Bothered" and "Faces to Faces," below, along with a Rdio stream of the whole shebang.

Still no word on a return to North America. Stay tuned.
