The Blakes are the slam dunkiest

So, after going to actually look at the KEXP charts mentioned in the Shake Some Action post below I realized that The Blakes are firmly planted at #1 in both the overall charts and the NW charts. Wow. I knew they were making some noise, but I didn't realize it was that big of a splash! Congrats guys!

Their new disc is quite hit and miss for me. But, when they're in their more melodic mode (or at least they less screamy modes), I dig 'em deeply. "Don't Bother Me," (which is on their myspace page) for example, isn't overly melodic. But, it is quite catchy and for some reason reminds me of something Billy Idol might have done when he was still cool.
