Today is an eventful day in my calendar. First we have three great releases. Sadly you can only have two of them today.
First is She Wants Revenge. This is a band that i found through Dreams of Horses. So thank you Mr. Horses. You can also get this one on itunes.[Buy LP]

Finally we have Wolfmother. This is that great band from Australia that has been getting hype on the blogs lately. I got into these guys when I found out about them playign sxsw. These guys are worth the listen and the new Dimensions EP is released today.[Buy EP]
Wolfmother - Dimensions [mp3]
Wolfmother - Woman [mp3]
The Raconteurs Tracks are still Here.
You Ain't No Picasso got me all excited about this so I decided to go ahead and record the second song for those of you that need it that bad. Man I sure do love these songs so make sure and get these while you can. Sorry I don't have a file hosting service but savefile will do for now.
If you don't know The Raconteurs is the work of Jack White and Brendan Benson along with Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler. Expect an Upcoming 7" of these songs, I know I will. And an album Broken Boy Soldiers 5/06.
The Raconteurs - Store Bought Bones [mp3]The Raconteurs - Steady As She Goes [mp3]
On their myspace Ester Drang call themselves Indie / Psychedelic, but I'm not entirely convinced. Although it is an adequate genre I think a better could be found as these tunes are much more relaxed and low key then the Psychedelic that I think of. The first track available for free is Come Back Alive, which just sounds great and deserves multiple listens as it is such a drawing sound it puts you in the mood that the song exhibits right away.
Ester Drang has a new album out entitled Rocinate. It was released January 24 of this month and is available on Jade Tree. Definitely take the time to listen to these guys and consider their stuff. They also have some other merch like t-shirts on the site.

First we have Tel Aviv. This band is one that I have heard about through friends and such as they play shows now and then, One of my High School friends is actually the sister of one of the band members. When I heard the mp3s from their site I was literally blown away that such a great band from Arkansas actually existed and I did not know about them. They have an upcoming date with Apollo Sunshine, who I assume most of you bloggers have heard of, but if not they are really great.
Tel Aviv - About Hysteria [mp3]
Tel Aviv - Black Marketeering [mp3]

Some info in the email today included a listing of new tour dates and the fact that Rose Hill Drive, a favorite band of mine, have finally signed a record deal and will be releasing an album. The band is reported on signing to Megaforce/Scifidelity Records. They spent the beginning of January recording the album in Atlanta and expect a late spring or early summer release this year. These guys really deserve some more credit. They have an awesome sound, but Pitchfork gave them a bad rap for their trck on the Stubbs The Zombie ST. If you are any kind of classic rock, especially Led Zepellin, fan then do yourself a favor and get into these guys.
Rose Hill Drive - Cool Cody [mp3]

In celebration of the release of both Morningwood's and We Are Scientists' album releases today I figured a post was in order. There has been some hype over the release of both these cds on the blogs. The talk is that these two bands will be in somewhat of a battle for the indie/label crowds. MOKB predicts Morningwood as the label winner and WAS as the indie winner. He has some mp3s from both bands and also links to other blog commentary.
Well here is a WAS present. Before the singles, new album, and Wolf's Hour Ep WAS released other material including In Action, Safety,Fun, and Learning(In that Order), and Bitching!. I've always wanted to get ahold of these and now here they are. Brought to you by a WAS fanpage the first three releases.(Link)
