This week on The Saturday Alternative, we rocked out with brand new music from The Dead Weather, The Fratellis and Australian punk rockers Royal Headache. We heard a catchy new single from Emily Haines and Metric, and had some fun with with the energetic Baltimore band, Sun Club. They just signed to ATO Records and are set to release a new album called The Dongo Durango. Natasha Khan, aka Bat For Lashes, just released some trippy new music with her new band SEXWITCH, and Seattle’s Michael Benjamin Lerner, aka Telekinesis, shared a gorgeous new song from his forthcoming album, Ad Infinitum.  Later in the show we got down with a funky new song from one of the tightest bands out there right now, Vulfpeck.

Our Fitting Room album came from the Oxford, England based band Foals, who have found the perfect balance between groove and aggression on What Went Down.
