Black Kids Rock
If you haven't become familiar with the alt sounds of Black Kids, then you oughta!
Black Kids are The Killers and Franz Ferdinand having a baby, giving it up for adoption, being raised by The Gossip with The Ting Tings as next door neighbours and The Cure as their godfather.
Their new CD, Partie Traumatic, is quite enjoyable. It's a little predictable in that it is very much the new "ALT Sound" of the late 00's, which is just a rehash of the 80's sound, but it is still very much fun!
Hurricane Jane is a fun song to just groove along to while sipping on a Grey Goose martini. I know they don't look like it, but they've got a sophisticated angle to their sound. Enjoy the following tracks.

Oh, scrap it. I'm going to post the whole thing.
