I was hipped to Cold War Kids by my Russian friend Влад, who resides in the Czech Republic and goes to an English school, despite CWK being an American band. Apparently, they came into his town and helped him party down, as I have seen multiple photos of him in his CWK t-shirt.
Before they released their excellent debut album, Robbers & Cowards, they released three limited-edition CD EPs. Most of the songs on them were either later re-used or completely re-recorded, but three from the first, Mulberry Street, have not appeared anywhere else, to the best of my knowledge. Today's song is my favorite of those three.
