Pungent Indie Rock

Super Love Attack -- Hero (3.8mb mp3 from their label's site)
I'll admit it -- I fell for this one almost entirely for the simple, sliding three-chord riff that opens up the intro, then chugs along later at important points in the song. With an anthem's vibe and perhaps some added distortion, it might evoke Nirvana or the Pixies, but the vocals are too weird to really consider those comparisons. The sound is so loose and unpolished that it might be a late-night jam crackling with alcohol-fueled energy. Anyway, it might take a few listens to really appreciate this beauty.
