The Fever's 2004 album Red Bedroom seemed to fly under a lot of people's radars, but I can only guess that if more people heard it they would be enraptured by it. The band can be compared to a melding of The Faint and Hot Hot Heat; there's plenty of driving rhythms and keyboards but also a darker edge to their sound as well. From what I hear, on their upcoming album In The City Of Sleep they are branching out a bit, exploring their darker side further and also incorporating more classical noir elements. Whatever that means. This new track "Redhead" isn't necessarily a good example of that, but I like it nonetheless. "Gray Ghost" (linked below) is one of my favourites from Red Bedroom.
