I love hearing a band that just hits you where it feels so good.
I read a review for the new Lucksmiths album today, and it seemed intriguing, so I went to Emusic and downloaded their first tape. And, when I was done listening to that, I downloaded the rest of their catalogue. They are charming, so very charming. Like Belle and Sebastian if Stuart Murdoch never got up from your bedside and started playing with the big kids. It's like sitting with your really sweet and awesome friends who decide to sing a few songs for you. I love this style of music.
What special new band (new to you, of course) are you digging?
