New Old 97s :: “Dance With Me”

Like a spontaneous tango across the floorboards of some dusty Texas bar, this new tune from the Old 97s combines fuzzy electric twang with a definite latin flare. I don’t know how to tango, but this song makes me feel like maybe I could figure it out — if Rhett leads, I’ll follow.

The first new album in four years from the Old 97s is due May 13th on New West Records, and will be called Blame It On Gravity.

  • I’ve seen them live and they put on a great show. Check them out if they come to a city near you.

  • Check out their new music video for the song “Dance with Me”. It is hilarious. Sci Fi geek goes on a kung fu rampage through a nightclub to get an autograph from Tricia Helfer of Battlestar Gallactica. This guys lays a serious smackdown.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
