I was looking over the lineup for outside lands this year and began researching all the bands I had never heard before. And there was a lot. It might one of the most indie alternative-fringe lineups in history.
One of the bands I discovered I instantly fell in love with: Electric Six is a band that likes to use the words "night," "party," "drugs," and "girls." Electric Six sounds like an electro dance jam band abortion of a sex romp between Tenacious D and the White Stripes.
I listened to Switzerland, the bands third album, over and over on my commute home, nearly crashing on the interstate while trying to lookup the song lyrics so I could sing along.
This song is particularly clever and catchy:
Have you ever smelt the clothes her sexy clothes?
Have you ever got to know her
Like I do?
Have you ever reversed roles?
Gave up control?
Stayed home and let your woman
I buy the drugs
I light the fire
I am your main supplier
I am your man and I buy the drugs
I can be the jump start for the car parked in your mind
Cos' You left the lights on all night long
We can drive for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away

Even as great as this band is, I am still not sold on this years Outside Lands Music and Arts festival. The lineup is good...not great. It's gotta be great to justify the money to get to San Francsico. If you go...be sure to catch Electric Six. Maybe the best band on the lineup!
