I bought in

I hate it so very much when I discover a band because some huge corporation has paid them royalties to use one of their songs in a commercial. However, I don't hate it to the point where I won't be exceptionally happy that I stumbled across the band. I was watching some pre-season hockey with the roomies (yes, I'm that Canadian... deal with it) when a Jack Daniels commercial came on for their new Tennessee Honey.  In addition to being very curious about this new punch-to-the-face of sweetness, Mr. Daniels also introduced me to the wonderful Stone Foxes.
Hailing from San Fran, The Stone Foxes are a four piece who have been playing together for around 6 years. With a sound that comes off at times similar to The Black Keys at times and at others, a throwback to early Rolling Stones (when they still had some soul), the sound of this band hits all the right checkboxes for me. After a phenominal record in 2008's self-titled debut, they have just released their second effort Bulls and Bears. The first single, "Psycho", from the new album can be seen at the bottom, however it was their cover of Slim Harpo's "I'm a King Bee" that earned them their Whisky notoriety.
