Indie rockers [lastfm]Ra Ra Riot[/lastfm] won hearts with their debut album The Rhumb Line two years ago, and fans have been not-so-patiently awaiting new music from the band ever since.

Listen to a full stream of the album, and watch the band perform new tune “Too Dramatic.” For the full [lastfm]Ra Ra Riot[/lastfm] session check out their page on Street Date.
Sugar is the second full-length album from Athens, Georgia grunge rockers [lastfm]Dead Confederate[/lastfm], but for most people it will be the first time they’ve heard of the group.
