Band To Watch

Band To Watch: Cold War Kids

“Regan babies, missile fears, and international blues. … Using songs of Dylan, B. Holiday, and the Velvet Underground as a road map, they strive to manipulate, structure, and style their music with honesty.” –

I’ve listened to “Hospital Beds” five times today. Great tune reminiscent of Walkmen’s wintry, piano-drenched debut. (And I plan to see ‘em at Pianos next week before they head to London.) They’ve already garnered considerable buzz opening for Two Gallants and will continue touring the states with Tapes ‘N Tapes in June.

Stream two songs at MySpace and let us know what you think.
