The Duke Spirit

Add Date: November 29 

Artist: The Duke Spirit 

Album: Bruiser 

Label: Shangri-La 

Genre: Rock, punk, pop 

Comments: From Pitchfork: "The Duke Spirit are a band you want to root for, blessed as they are with an alluring frontwowan (Liela Moss) and good taste (drawing on everything from 1980s UK indie to northern soul to murder ballads), but also a willingness to burnish those outsider sources with a considerable sass and swagger to bring the masses on-side. And yet, the masses have been mostly resistant to their charms..."

The Duke Spirit is a band whose music is both rhythm and melody-heavy. Dense guitars and driving drums fuel each of the songs on this record. The band's got a pure rock 'n roll sound that is bolstered by great songwriting and sweet vocals. Start with tracks 1, 3 and 7.
