When MGMT jumped the shark on their second release and put out an album of unfriendly for the radio art songs, cries of sorrow rang out across the world of hipsters. For those that loved the sound of the first MGMT record, you are going to love The Rassle! The New York-based band is comprised of ex-members of The Virgins and Young Lords and I have a feeling this band is going to become a household name in the not so distant future. The band is rightfully confident in that thought as they want you to hear their music – FOR FREE! If you visit The Rassle’s official site, you can download a 4-track EP for free that features the songs “Wild Ones,” “Celebrate the Days,” “Full Speed Ahead (FSA)” and “Born Free.” I cannot stop listening to these infectious, but guilt free indie pop/rock tunes. I know that you’ll agree so head on down to The Rassle’s official site here and get to groovin’! Special thanks to IG for turning us all on to The Rassle!
