If you thought 2005’s Tournament of Hearts was a little too tender for the band that once shouted We want the death of rock ‘n’ roll!, fear not. “Hard Feelings” – the 7″ single from the Constantines‘ as-yet-untitled fourth album – is all sweat and grit, as searing as the flaming oil geyser in There Will Be Blood. The film’s Daniel Plainview would sympathize with b-side “Easy Money,” a song heavier than a ton of dynamite and about as explosive.
