My Favorite Band of 2009 (so far)

Come On Gang!

Every so often I come across a band that I like so much I can't talk about them like a normal person. I start off okay and pretty soon I sound like I'm ten talking about someone's really cool older sister.

Come On Gang is, like, this really cool band from Scotland. Their singer, she's a drummer, and when she drums she also sings and she's like really, really good and cute. I want to grow up to be just like her.*

There are two boys in the band and they play guitar and bass and it's this really driving, toe-tapping beat that's super-awesome, okay? Go get their EP off iTunes for $1.98 already!

Here is my favorite track: Both Ends Burning. I challenge you not to bob your head.

The sing off their album is called Wheels click "read more" to watch the video on you tube.

* and since this band formed at a college in 2007 she's probably ten years younger than me. D'oh!
