This Scottish trio’s avalanche of overseas acclaim has led to one of the ultimate stamps of American approval: a much-broadcast iTunes commercial featuring their single ”Flathead.” Their punchy choruses and propulsive garage riffs are as addictive as those of 2006 sensations Arctic Monkeys, though on Costello Music the Fratellis are less art-school snark and more fist-pounding beer-pub glee. And they’ve got the scrappy working-class vocabulary to match: Do we know what ”Doginabag” means? No, but it sounds fun. B+
