Southern Rock for this Yankee

Today, one of my favorite albums so far this year, “Aha Shake Heartbreak” was released by the Tennessee quartet Kings of Leon. This band was first described to me as the “southern Strokes”, and it’s one of the few comparisons that actually seems to fit in this case. Kings of Leon play a very catchy garage rock style, with a definite Southern flavor. While I am not typically a fan of anything described as “southern”, I really enjoy this record. The only complaint I have is it’s brevity, because 35 minutes hardly qualifies as an LP in my book. If you’re rich and have money to blow, you can check the band out when it open up for U2 on their tour in April & May, thought they will be in the Midwest during March (of course, Cleveland is not on the tour…what a surprise). So thanks goes out to James for telling me about this band.

If you’re interested, you can go here to preview the new album via VH1.
