LISTENING POST: Roughstars–"The Virus"

Bullet hand on head

Brooklyn's Roughstars put their best Bump Rock–a brew of rock, soul, new wave and post-punk sensibilities–on you in this hot track from their recently released album, "How to Survive In The Woods' (Home Style Cooking).  Theirs is an evolving sound: On the album, there's definitely a dance feel to a lot of the songs, while their live show is more like an indie band with a good backbeat.  

Good stuff.  Definitely see them when you can.
