Modern Retro Music - More Please

Some of the best new music has an old feel.

It crept up on me slowly, but once I caught it this old rocker was thrilled.

Have you noticed it? Modern bands with a song or two which could have been a b-side on one of your 45s?

Cage the Elephant, who the average radio listener would have discovered in 2009's Ain't No Rest For The Wicked, has put out two wonderful retro songs back to back.

Maybe less obvious, but still not of this millennium is Muse's Panic Station. The funky guitar and disco feel puts this gem squarely in the 70s.

Finally, meet the Sheepdogs - a Canadian band with some definite affections for 60s rock. Enjoy this thinly-veiled tribute to Norman Greenbaum's Spirit in the Sky.
