MP3 of the Day: High Decibels

Oakland's High Decibels get compared to "late '80s Beastie Boys" by their publicist, but this awesome track "Miss Cindy" is straight up early days of Beck, back when he was just a funny little "Loser." The duo of Duke Johnson and Chief isn't single minded in focus, though, riffing on everything from country rock to hip-hop to Zeppelin blues and hard funk. It comes together in singles that'll instantly get you, as they rap, "loose off the goose." I can't wait for the full album, which comes out in early September. But in the meantime, keep track of these dudes through their MySpace page. (And ps. If you like what you hear, check out Seattle's The Saturday Knights, who I've plugged in this blog before). -- Jennifer Maerz
