The Wednesday Mail Room: Young Lords

The BTA inbox has recently been a source of great musical discoveries, and one of the best arrived last week in the form of an email from New York City's Young Lords. These guys pump out grimy blues/rock numbers that bring to mind Beggars Banquet-era Rolling Stones with a little Strokes and Kinks thrown in for good measure. Check out "Rodeo Songs" and "Turn It Up" below to see what I'm trying to get at.
