Buy This Album: You Am I - "Convicts"

The totally fuckin' awesome Australian band You Am I have just released a new album. If you haven't heard of them, you are not alone. The Boston Globe called them The Best Australian Band You've Never Heard Of last year.

I tell people that they are the Australian Replacements. I don't throw out compliments like that very often. They are really good. In Australia, their last three albums debuted at #1, and they play with the likes of The Who and The Rolling Stones.

In the US, they have to settle for blog posts from the likes of me. You Am I have just released their album, Convicts (purchase here), in the US. They have a very brief US tour beginning in March in Minneapolis. I have been trying to get them to come to Omaha, but they do not have a free date on this current tour. Damn.
