Two words: The Weeks
Who? An indie rock band from Mississippi
What? A kick-ass Southern Rock outfit ready to get you jamming.
Why you should listen? Because my brother said so! Well he did turn me on to them and we have been getting ourselves caught up on their albums Comeback Cadillac and Rumspringa EP for the last couple of weeks. Both of which are awesome.
A reason you’ll be excited: Gutter Gaunt Gangster, their new EP out this fall (but you can get it here) and the evolution of this band can definitely be heard (check the lead single “House We Grew Up In”) but please do yourself a favor and start at the beginning before jumping up to the present.
Why I’m excited: Because Southern Rock is making a fiery resurgence and these seasoned kids should be rising the ranks very fast. They’ve been around for some time and I’m just thrilled to now have their music in my library and be able to enjoy this.
If you like: Kings of Leon, North Mississippi and AWOLNATION
Final thoughts: If you live in the southeast you have no reason not to see this band live. If you live west of the Mississippi, we all need to do what we can to get these fellas out to the left coast so they can bring their sound to the masses.
