Baby Darling Doll Face Honey by Band of Skulls

I have found a new love!

The iTunes free download of the week is a song off of Band of Skulls' debut album, "Baby Darling Doll Face Honey."  I was nervous to download at first, because the band name does not exactly bode well--and if there's anything I am not, it's a heavy metal fan.  So, here I was, about to move on, and then I thought, "What am I thinking?!  This is free!" 

And so, exactly 34.2 seconds later, I had in the palm of my hand ( MacBook), a perfect little treasure in I Know What I Am.  It definitely has an edge to it, but I find it incredibly infectious.  I anticipate it becoming a great running song now that the weather is finally getting warmer outside.

I have perused the rest of the album (albeit briefly--the album only dropped two days ago), and definitely recommend downloading the whole thing.  Gone are the days that people listened to an album as a whole instead of piecemeal, but I have the feeling that "Baby Darling Doll Face Honey" is one that we would be remiss to just listen to bits and pieces.

omg thaaaank you! I was just about to go running and I was like, "Man, I need more running music in my life," and this track is stellar.

Totes agree with you on the no-one-listens-to-an-album-anymore thing. Its odd that an aspect of listening itself has become a lost art.
