band crush: the districts
where the black keys and college parties collide.

With intense guitar-driven tracks and twangy vocals (courtesy of lead singer Rob Grote), the Black Keys comparisons here are obvious. Same goes for Kings of Leon, Young Buffalo, or even Mumford and Sons. But listen to recent releases like "Rocking Chair" and "Funeral Beds" and you'll hear a soulful intimacy that's all their own.
After knocking the socks off everyone at SXSW, they're finishing their debut, out this year. Bottom line? This is one of the buzziest bands around (and we're not just talking about the chorus on "Funeral Beds"), so we suggest hopping on The Districts train early and get ready to go full speed ahead.
