New Music You Should Know: Cold War Kids

One of the most original sounding bands I’ve heard in awhile are the Cold War Kids.  They make music which has a punk feel, but brings soul and funk to the dance, so their music sounds tuneful, despite the chaos that always seems ready to break out.  This is one of those bands that you will either love or hate.  Their debut is much stronger than the follow-up, so I’m heavy here on stuff from Robbers and Cowards. Here is Hang Me Up to Dry, We Used to Vacation, Something is Not Right with Me, Audience, and a cover of their song Hospital Beds with the very excellent Florence and the Machine.
