The Rakes - Ten New Messages
These London boys really put on quite a show when I saw them a Varsity Theater 7/11/06. I love love love their new album "Ten New Messages". Such a great departure from the debut. Along with Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" this is my front-runner for album of the year so far. Check out a couple of tunes:
mp3: The Rakes - Suspicious Eyes (A+)
mp3: The Rakes - When Tom Cruise Cries (love the song title alone)
The album just dropped 3/19/07 in the UK... I'm not sure when the CD will be released in the US; if you don't feel like paying the import price, you can also get it digitally via eMusic.
