This will be my last post before my end of the year picks, which are going to be done in a series of 4 or 5 posts. We're going to start with some fun stuff and then get down to business for the top 20 albums of the year, but for now let's just enjoy this.

Locksley is a Madison, WI turned Brooklyn-based quartet that will remind you of The Beatles. It's 70's light-hearted rock with a modern bite. With free-flowing, wilting vocals and jangly (you'll see this adjective later's a word, I think) guitars that skip in your ears like rocks water skiing on Lake Michigan (which means very nicely). Locksley manages to create broad sounds that fill up the given space, but they never overdo it. It's so easy to just create noise these days in an attempt to sound original or different (see TV on the Radio...yuck) but Locksley seems to have it all figured out. With their motto being "yeah. rock", I think we've got an upcoming album about which to be excited (their first album will be released January 16).

A few tracks have been available over the internet, primarily over at so I'll direct you to some of my favorite tracks from there.

Listen to "Here There" (4.7/5)
Listen to "She Does" (4/5)
