Free Mystery Jets MP3 That Actually Makes a Case for Whistling in Songs

Those generous boys in Mystery Jets have offered us a taste of their forthcoming album, Serotonin,tentatively set for release in July. Head over to to listen to “Flash a Hungry Smile”, while viewing the front page photo, which appears to be a slightly disgusting literal interpretation of the song’s title. If “Flash a Hungry Smile” is any indication, Mystery Jets’ third release should see the band further honing the pop sensibilities showcased on previous release Twenty-One. Enlisting Chris Thomas, who has worked with everyone from Pulp to Paul McCartney, as producer should be further indication of this. On “Flash a Hungry Smile” at least, all the capable hands seem to be working in harmony, as even the whistling bit resists being overly cutesy.
