Don't Sleep On The Tough Alliance

For every endorsement you catch and regret looking into from Pitchfork, Blitzen Trapper I'm eye balling you, there are some that you miss. Like today, buried beneath a James Brown hits disc and a Flaming Lips live album is an excellent EP by a band I think has a shot at cult notoriety.

The band is the Tough Alliance and the EP is called New Waves. Some how inspite of an 8.0 this EP is missing the Recomended tag, so I've taken it upon myself to make the Recomendation. The EP would be worth your scratch just for the synthed out bliss of lead single "Silly Crimes," the best single to spill out of Sweden since PB&J's Writer's Block had us whistling this past fall.

But that's not all. There's dark spot's and dancier spots and it's all in such a tight little package that you have no time to get fed up with the mini-album's short comings. Below is the video for "Silly Crimes", if it doesn't sell you I have no idea what might. You can also MySpace them.
