MUSIC: Call Me Lightning (New Frenchkiss Band!)

In typical Frenchkiss Records fashion, they've gone out and found themselves an excellent new band. Hailing from Milwaukee, welcome Call Me Lightning to the fold (check out their excellent website). In a similar vein to other FK signees, they play driving post-punk..... full of energy, surprisingly good songwriting, and some good ol' middle America angst. Their debut album, released on Revelation Records, is called "The Trouble We're In", but they're working on a new one for the FK gang. Here are a couple tracks.

::: Call Me Lightning - Ghosts In The Mirror
::: Call Me Lightning - Golden Radical (Young Professional)
::: Call Me Lightning - Horseflies

You can buy the album here.
