Last Night: Cold War Kids

Yeah, I'm late on this one. I heard the music a long time ago but it didn't grasp me. Now after seeing them open last night for the Editors at the Avalon I am a fan. The band has a very interesting sound with some solid bass lines, mixes Jeff Buckley with a New Orleans brass band vibe and nothing "straight-ahead." The band just completed a move to Downtown Records (home of Gnarls and Art Brut). Here are tracks for you.

Cold War Kids - Hair Down
Cold War Kids - Hospital Beds
