AOL Spinner offers an on-going feature where they stream a selection of newly released albums for a limited period of time. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how long they are available.

Currently they've got two good ones.

Gaslight Anthem - iTunes Sessions, which came out today, features one new Gaslight song, a reworked version of "Boxer", and covers of "Baba O'Riley" (The Who),"Refugee" (Petty), "State of Love and Trust" (Pearl Jam), and "House of the Rising Sun" (The Animals). Click Here to Listen.

Deep Dark Woods - The Place I Left Behind - Which I mentioned back in July. Click Here to Listen.

Yet Another Band New to Me - Prison Book Club

I've stumbled across alot of pretty good new music lately, or at least stuff that's new to me, and these guys may be the best of the recent bunch.

Prison Book Club includes members of The Fox Hunt and The Demon Beat (both of which you should check out if you aren't already familiar). In terms of their sound I'll spare you my attempt at a description because you can listen to both of their albums below, but if you're a fan of early Lucero and grittier DBT (think Cooley songs) you're likely a fan of Prison Book Club.

Prison Book Club released August 2011:

Required Reading released September 2009:

New Band - Alabama Shakes

Just recently discovered The Alabama Shakes from Athens, AL. Nice southern rock with a nostalgic nod to classic soul and vintage blues. Check out their recently released debut EP below courtesy of bandcamp, where you can buy it for $4.
