Cage The Elephant’s self-titled Jive debut may have only hit shelves last month, but the Kentucky five-piece will be searing ears all summer.
The album’s junkyardy single “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” is making headway on alternative radio right now, but this young act has let rocking “Tiny Little Robots” out of the box for free. Download it here, stream it below.
Based on two personally witnessed accounts of the band live — at this year’s South By Southwest and New York’s Mercury Lounge — Cage The Elephant is better live than it is on record, which, I assure you, is really saying something. The group only has festival appearances slated for the U.S. this summer so far, but are sure to post regular touring dates soon… right?
