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.
