Alright, stop whatever you're doing right now. No. Seriously. Stop. Right now. Great, now that I have your attention, click here and give a listen to the Natural Selection, a new local act my boy Bitz turned me onto. Let's see, there's really no real delicate way to put this...on first listen, these kids fucking smash it -- even if the lead singer at times sounds alarmingly like Donald Fagen. This is the freshest shit I've heard in a while, particularly "15 Up to Colfax," which does a TV on the Radio flyby.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
