Icebird single and Art Brut

This is the freshest song I have heard in a while…though some might hear the obvious Black Keys influence this is so absurdly retro it sounds new. Not that I don’t think it is original but the organ is so 70s and the break in the middle is like a cross between Pink Floyd and Led Zep (on Thank You) with a quasi- Jeff Buckley vocal). I am going to buy the cd but it might be a little difficult to find in Canada.

Also, the latest Art Brut is a pleasant surprise. Again to describe it in terms of other bands, it sounds like Rancid crossed with Jarvis Cocker with that talk veering into singing and back again and in and out of key. A sound that could only have come out of Britain.
