Hot shit. Saw this album at worked and decided to check them out because Pitchfork (♥ ♥) rated it the best new band sometime recently. Come on USA - how come Europe is showing us what's up? La Roux, Goldfrapp, Little Boots, The Script, The Streets, Travis, The Ting Tings, Sam Sparro, Snow Patrol, the Kooks?! Thank goodness for my new loves, Au Revoire Simone and Jakob Dylan - those two might not be groundbreaking but I love, love, love them and they're pretty solid. What are you guys listening to these days?
PS. I forgot about Bobby Ray...he's definitely a new fave, reminds me of Big Boi! But he's legit and great on his own standing still.
PPS. OK now I'm just embarassed to be American....you guys, our top-downloaded iTunes song right now is "California Gurls" by Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dog. You guys. YOU GUYS. *shaking my damn head*
