Heavy and dark; good for when you’re a little ticked off! Great mix of Jack White and Alison Mosshart: look at “Treat me like your mother” and “Rocking Horse”

Folky & Rocky, and a bit whiney (most of the time!). Just the right tempo to sit back and smoke to!  Listen to “Dirty Dishes” and I like “Christ Jesus” for the lyrics and the title itself!

Very fun Australian band…think MGMT grown up and more mature style and prose.  However they deserve their own listen as they are very different in many aspects.  I highly recommend “Tiger By My Side” — Lyrics from “Tiger” “Making music in my mind, I’m blending coulors for the blind.  Melt the pinnacle, you’re times not over”  Very nice!
