Golden Animals - Free Your Mind And Win A Pony

Someone had mentioned this band in the shoutbox a week ago, and I figured it deserved a post here. This is a really solid album from a psychedelic/folk/rock duo from California. Their sound is similar to The White Stripes at moments, and they will unfortunately always deal with that comparison due to the same girl drum/boy guitar setup, but, with a more southern flavor and The Doors-ish vocals, they are able to maintain their individuality. She certainly is a better vocalist than Meg White with her haunting ohs, ahs, and hums. This is one of the better albums in what has been a pretty drab year of music.

found these guys on The Black Angels myspace friends list. Good stuff.
You said this was a down year, I would list Warlocks "Heavy Deavy Skull Lover", The Black Angels "directions to see a ghost", and Those Poor Bastards "Satan is Watching" as 3 must haves. How bout that Black Angels review you promised a while back?
