Music Must for Your Week: Kings of Leon’s Come Around Sundown

Hailing from Tennessee, Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill’s groaning, moaning, heartbroken vocals have been a sexy staple to my record collection since I first heard the band’s Grammy award winning “Use Somebody” in 2008. Only By The Night was just a great album, dudes—and their latest release, Come Around Sundown, is pretty darn good too. 

The guitars are still sleepy, the beats still kicked up and a little dusty, and the boys are still frustrated and frenetic. These tracks are a bit more complex than their previous hits, a change that reveals slightly more grown up Kings that aren’t afraid to take a musical risk, but largely you’re getting a record that sounds like a continuation of Only By The Night. Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?

 You can stream the album for your listening pleasure!

Come Around Sundown was released earlier this week! Are you gonna pick it up?
