    I just discovered this band, and maybe I'm a little late to the party, but I'm really impressed. If you like the Black Keys, White Stripes and a Hendrix-ey feel, you'll love these guys. 2nd was just released on Tuesday.

    Oh Yea, I dig them! I discovered them a few months ago. Fire is such a killer song. I'm ordering the new CD today.

    yeah, I like some of their stuff.

    Heard some music of theirs on a commercial, Shazam'd it http://www.shazam.com/ and downloaded it!

    Couple of other threads on them you might search for to get more feedback. If you can, go see them live, they really rock -- I have their 1st CD and it is good, but live, the songs took on a whole new feel and were outstanding. Everytime I listen to a track off that CD I keep wishing they'd just put out a live version of it as the CD just doesn't do the songs justice.

    I haven't heard that much, but dug "I Know What I Know", esp. the female voice.

    DO LIKE


    I loved them from the first time I heard "Death By Diamonds and Pearls"


    To me, they're essentially the White Stripes circa 2001 -- that is, great bombastic garage rock with infectious hooks, clever structures, and good lyrics
