I meant to plug these guys a while back, right after Tom turned me on to them, but there's a fairly obscure Baltimore-based band by the name of Karmella's Game who have a curiously well-designed website as well as a rocking album, The Art of Distraction. I saw Mike Crowley last night, and he was complaining about the unreliability of my music recommendations, so perhaps I should say more. I like this band a lot, but I like lots of bands featuring female singers and plenty of synthesizer. Others may find them less appealing. You can check out some songs on their MySpace page, though their most blogger-friendly song, "The Revolution Will Be Cybercast," isn't up there.
