And, since it's always nice to impress a date by knowing the name of a song or two, we suggest you download this free MP3 of "The Philosopher's Daughter."
Warning: While the recording may have you thinking at times of Dinosaur Jr. or My Morning Jacket, since recording their EP, Lavola has grown. If you catch one of their shows (and you should), be prepared for something much, much bigger. You can read a profile of who they are, where they come from, and all about their monster live sound over at my blog, Bone in the Fan.
