Ok, I don’t really have a new favorite band. My favorite band is still Wilco, but there was a kick-arse band on Dave Lettermen tonight. ** This post is a reminder why we should all have a Tivo – Season Pass for Letterman because then you can go back and check out a good artist you miss.**
Anyhow, the band was Shout Out Louds. They’re a Swedish band. One of my favorite things about them is they have a friggin’ accordion player in the band. You can’t go wrong if you’re an alternative band with an accordion player… And for all you iTunes people out there you can get their album, “Howl Howl Gaff Gaff“, for the bargain price of $8.91. I’m not sure what’s up with that pricing, but I’m not complaining about saving the extra buck.
So I’ve heard the one song they played on Letterman and I’m buying the album. They’ve got an original sound and an accordion. I’m in. I’ll post a review of the album next week.
