If you’re a music fan of a certain age (ahem, I’m talking about my age), you cherish the alt-rock of your youth. Sometimes I long for the the mid-90s top 40 with Soundgarden, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and their ilk. Ah, those were the days. That’s why when a band like Mleo and a song like “Ridiculous” comes along, it’s all the more exciting. These LA natives take that sterling sound and infuse it with just enough pop to make it palatable and modern.

So, here’s my challenge to you: listen to “Ridiculous” below and try not to seek out their full album, 2014’s Sunken City. My guess is that you’ll be to enchanted to stop your Googling fingers.

For more Mleo, find the band on Facebook.
