Follow the White Rabbits
Sometimes an album slips by only to appear months later while shuffling through your iPod. I picked up the White Rabbits album a couple of months ago but I do not remember playing it. Either way, I heard one track yesterday and it stuck. They are like The Walkmen but mixed in with a little jangly pop.
One thing that definitely stands out are the drums and I am not surprised since they have two drummers. But do not think they overpower the rest of the music. Each drummer realizes there is another one there and they compliment rather than complete with each other. You can hear all types of influences in their music but particularly calypso. And it works.
