Stream The New Kings Of Leon

Always thought this Tennessean family was more style than substance (on account of the retro facial hair and Strokes tour slot) and consequently slept on the first album. So the thoroughly engaging Southern-fried follow-up took me by surprise. PC users can stream all of Aha Shake Heartbreak here. “The Bucket” (smart choice for first single) is one of my most played iTunes these days. The verse melody rips Tori Amos’ from “Silent All These Years.” I ain’t mad at that. Someone mash ‘em please.
