With Love and Squalor

Recipe for a Rockin’ Good Time Morning:

1 box donuts
2 cups coffee
We Are Scientists’ With Love and Squalor

“This Scene is Dead” (download) and “The Great Escape” (download) will give you a good taste. I wasn’t expecting to find much here — the hipster buzz surrounding the band is approaching deafening levels — but We Are Scientists manage to rock a snarky postmodern attitude without being as fussy, pretentious, or boring as many of their peers. Plus, it’s got a good beat and you can dance to it.
