I haven’t delivered any good music in a while. And I know we all want to Save Ferris Grambo. So here’s what’s rocking my iTunes this week:

Franz Ferdinand
The Scots play a sold-out Bowery Ballroom tonight. You’ll be reading rave reviews from The Cool Kids tomorrow. Album comes out March 9.

Download: “Matinee”
From The Album: Franz Ferdinand (Domino)
For Fans Of: Interpol, The Libertines, early Talking Heads

This could’ve been a great double album. Instead, Kurt’s gone all Use Your Illusion on us. Get both. $11 each at Virgin.

Download: “Steve McQueen”
From The Album: Aw C’Mon (Merge)
For Fans Of: Pernice Brothers, Jim O’Rourke, Eric Matthews

Scissor Sisters
They do a Bee Geefied cover of “Comfortably Numb,” but the better tracks are less clubby. By the time this album drops stateside (late summer) it will be as DOA as Fischerspooner. So listen up now (import is on sale at Virgin for $19.99).

Download: “Laura”
From The Album: Scissor Sisters (Polydor)
For Fans Of: Junior Senior, early Elton John, The Darkness

Enjoy. I wanna hear your thoughts on these bands.
