Liberty Never Sounded So Good
|The Cobbs - Their album Sing The Deathcapades will be one of my favorite albums of 2006, and hopefully won't go unnoticed to the indie community. The band is rooted in Psychrock, but the album is textured with elements of hard rock, 80's Springsteen tenderness, and a little '90's grunge crunch. I've had this album on repeat for the last few days and it only gets better. Be sure to check them out.|

Black Pearl - I haven't heard too much about this band, but what I've seen and heard, I really like. This song "All The Pretty Girls" is saturated in psych sludge, akin to a poppier Dead Meadow. They've got a few more tracks available at their Myspace page.
