Artist of the Week: Klaxons

The leaders of what is being called "New Rave" the Klaxons are one of the most talked about bands on the internet. I'm not jumping in to be cool, but I'm jumping in because I really like their sound. Hailing from New Cross, London these three guys are preparing to make a huge splash in 2007. Just this week they released the first single (MagicK) from their fourthcoming album, "Myths of the Near Future", to be release in January 2007. Their sound has been described as "acid-rave sci-fi punk-funk". I just think it sounds good!

Listen for yourself:

Klaxons - Gravity's Rainbow (Van She Remix) (mp3)
