The White Animals

Following on from the music post down below a bit, Wally Bangs offers up thorough look Nashville dub/pop-rockers The White Animals.

He mentions a cover of their's I'd forgotten: These Boots Are Made for Walkin', a dubbed-up (as in Jamaican reggae) cover of the Nancy Sinatra song. Powerhouse bass carries the day. You instantly recognise the song, but it comes at you through a haze of atmospherics.

Take a moment while you're there to poke around Wally's blog. He and I have extremely similar musical tastes; we met through our affiliation with Blogcritics as reviewers. Wallys also posts on his life in southeast Tennessee. Make sure to read the post that precedes his music post, about a childhood friend. Great stuff.
