Hailing from London but with a blues-rock sound reminiscent of the White Stripes or the Dead Weather, this is a new record that i've been spinning around and around.

Hello hello! I've got another spiffy Band of Skulls contest for you. This one is a bit local - 2 tickets for the band's show this Saturday at Modified.
