Some more clover

This one by the youngsters Buffalo Clover gives me a bit of Tom Waits combined with Dresden Dolls vibe. The song is "Ashes and Sand", which isn't on any released album -- yet. Keep checking iTunes.

BTW, I first came across these youngsters via their song Luck, which was about having anything but. It's available on iTunes now via their album Pick Your Poison. I don't know if I'd call this a "must-buy" -- it's not something like, say, Serj Tankian's Elect the Dead or Drive By Trucker's Decoration Day which are brilliant and important and if you don't own the album, you should immediately start pounding yourself over the head with a hammer in dismay -- but thus far what I've sampled has been interesting and somewhat unique. And really, if you don't have any must-buys in your queue, interesting and unique is certainly worth dropping a few coins for, especially since these youngsters aren't exactly drowning in coin...
