The Bobby Lees- porch blues punk - "Jitterbug Perfume" from the "Beauty Pageant: album

Listen to Jitterbug Perfume (from the Beauty Pageant album) while driving down a desolate road in rural Georgia and you might get freaked out a bit and if a deer darts out in front of you then you might shit your pants. This is because this track by The Bobby Lees is at once very cool and retro chic but also kind of haunting and dare I say dangerous sounding, even so edgy as to be creepy in the Rob Zombie sort of way.

However you feel it- the sound is captivating as shit. Call it punk blues, or skiffle punk or whatever I love the girl / boy vocals and the punk X Billy Zoom frozen smile aesthetic.
