Cold War Kids - LA Divine [LP]
The Cold War Kids deliver the indie-dance-rock goods on their latest album, named in honor of their hometown of Los Angeles. The music is energetic and expressive, but the lyrics are introspective and often allude to the process of maturing in the context of living the rock 'n' roll lifestyle, as in the power ballad "Can We Hang On?" and the piano heavy "Restless." Be sure to put your dancing shoes on for the hand-clapping, foot-stomping "So Tied Up" and lead single "Love Is Mystical," which will almost certainly be playing many a night this summer.
