That's Just Rank

Two Ton Boa -- Cash Machine (4.5mb mp3 from the band's SXSW '07 page)
Another bass-heavy beauty here, with two full minutes of twists and turns -- jazzy, bluesy grooves, odd electronic clicks and beeps, and a singer alternating between lounge singing and spitting yells -- before it builds to a truly wonderful sort of pop-harmony chorus. After 30 seconds of that pure genius, it drops right back down into the cool weirdness of the first two minutes. If it ended there, I probably wouldn't have given it a second listen, but thankfully they gave us a second chorus to hook us forever.
