Ian Mackaye's latest group The Evens are dropping a new album November 6th called Get Evens. It's a great indie-rock album and is even catchier than their 2005 self-titled release.
While listening to one of my favorite tracks on the album, "No Money" immediately hit me with one of those deja-vu music moments. I went hunting around my oldies folder and dug up the 1957 song from Buddy Holly's debut album entitled "Not Fade Away". I think they sound pretty alike (though I actually like Buddy Holly's better, regardless). Think I'm reaching?
The Even's opening track "Cut From The Cloth" is also a standout song so check that one out too. Thanks to 5500 on flickr for the Ian Mackaye shot.
