Sex On Fire

Last summer an acquaintance that I fancied quite a bit gave me a pile of homemade CDs with songs by his favorite rock artists. As much as I like to think that I have the most immaculate musical taste in the world *cough* I love to check out what other people are into musically. It can tell you a lot about a person - music speaks volumes when words and actions fail. One of the bands I fell in love with on one of the CDs was Kings of Leon, with the song was "Molly's Chambers" from the 2003 EP Holy Roller Novocaine:

Fast forward to now - they've got a new album dropping on the 23rd and a new song called "Sex On Fire" which coincidentally is an accurately descriptive phrase to describe how it sounds - except less painful:

Sex On Fire

Peep how the lead singer looks like he's all of 13 years old - with a full grown 8 o'clock shadow (cuz it's too heavy to be a 5 o'clock shadow but it still isn't quite a full grown beard) a la Rick Fox. He doesn't look like he should have a voice like that either - but his voice is one of the things I dig the most about their sound. He could sing names from the White Pages to me and I'd be enthralled :)

They're coming to the Aragon on Halloween - I'm thinking I might go, especially if I dig their new album when it comes out. I have more than a month to make up my mind - I'll figure it out, HAHA...
