Who Killed the Zutons?

The Zutons' single "Pressure Point," a cool brew of Doors-esque rock and New Orleans funk, is featured in the Levi's 505 commercial where the dog chases a woman up a tree to retrieve her boyfriend's jeans. There's more than a savvy marketing tie-in, though, to this coed quintet from Liverpool, England. On their groovy debut, the Zutons update '60s psychedelia with a futuristic spaciness that brings to mind the Jetsons on acid. The result is art rock that is never pretentious but playful on tracks like the infectious stomper "You Will You Won't" and the cleverly titled "Havana Gang Brawl."
