Stolen From the Radio 05/28: The Danks
Earlier this year, I started producing a radio show on CJLO (1690AM) called Edge of the City. It’s on every Monday from Noon to 2PM. You know what’s great about having access to a college radio station? I get to raid their library. Know what that means? It means that every Monday, I’m going to grab a bunch of random albums from the station, listen to them, and feature the best one here. Enjoy!
This week, I grabbed a bunch of mediocre folk, and a weird record by a band called Noodle Muffin, but the real stand-out was The Danks, who won me over with their early-00′s rock style.
Though their name is pretty forgettable, the Danks have put together a pretty decent first effort that is highly reminiscent of The Strokes and other such soft-edged rock acts from the States. This album, “Are you Afraid of the Danks?”, actually hit the spot for me this week. It’s always fun when you hear something new that’s exactly what you were in the mood for, and the Danks certainly did that for me. The record’s been added to my library, it’ll be staying there from now on, and it could be a part of yours, too! Listen to the song “Automocar” below, and download it for free.
