Band of Skulls "Baby Darling Doll Face Honey"(CD)

The only album thus far released by this bluesy garage rock trio first caught my ear when it's lead-off track was featured in a commercial for a Ford Mustang.

It's still one of my favorite tracks on the album; lava slow, simmering to a boil and then backing the tempo down to a swaggering decay.

There are a lot of hidden gems that show a band that could really breakthrough. Here's hoping they're left to develop naturally without any unnecessary exposure. Their future work could be epic.
