Gasoline Heart -- Cucumber Riot

There are a million Springsteen-influenced roots rock bands. But not all of them are good. And virtually none of them offer their music for free. So you should take advantage of the fact that one of the good ones, Orlando, Florida's Gasoline Heart, is offering their new album Cucumber Riot for free, right here.

This is no-frills rock 'n roll, no apologies offered or needed. The guitars ring, the drums slam, and the lead singer hyperventilates while screaming and growling well-written odes to love, lost and found. It's an old formula, but when it works (and it works here), it's just about the best sound in the world. You ought to pay money for this. But in this case, you don't have to. And no, I have no idea why cucumbers might incite a riot.
