Analog Saint punk rock with power pop bones - "Mexico (Lonely Man)" from the "New World" album

Los Angeles' Analog Saint churn out punk rock with power pop (even slightly glammy) bones. Their raw, dirty meets clean sound exists somewhere between the 70's punk of the Dictators and the 80's power pop of the Plimsouls. Paul Orea's sand paper voice sounds so perfect for this kind of stuff and while on their debut album "New World" they keep the songs pretty straight forward on songs like Messiah On Fire and Mexico (Lonely Man) they get more cagey and, in fact, I thought of Jane's Addiction a bit. Per their Facebook page, Analog Saint is Paul Orea (vox, guitar), Michael Orea (vox, drums) and Jarrod Moore (bass, comedian).
