Band of Skulls - Baby Darling Doll Face Honey

Band of Skulls are a rock trio from England consisting of two vocalists (Russel Marsden: guitar/vox, Emma Richardson: bass/vox, & drummer Matt Hayward).

The band was founded in 2008, with their debut album '
Baby Darling Doll Face Honey' released earlier this year.
Marsden and Richardson alternate the writing process, but often come together to meld their penchant for blues-rock; think a sort of meeting point between The White Stripes and Supergrass.

Some tracks could be argued filler, but for the most part the better bests the worse -- especially on standouts like "Death By Diamonds & Pearls" and "Patterns".

Also recommend checking Brooklyn's The Big Sleep for another quality rock-variant.
