Friday Night Music: The Duke Spirit

Here’s a little music for your Friday night, courtesy of one of my favorite bands, The Duke Spirit. It’s English rock with a touch of blues and soul, fronted by lead singer Liela Moss, who’s got one of those classic, timeless voices that sounds like it would fit in any decade. They’ve put out three albums so far, so I’ll give you one of the best tracks from each.

From Cuts Across the Land (2005):

From Neptune (2008):

From Bruiser (2011):

What songs have been running through your head this week?

Atlas Shrugged: Hobo Sign
The Rebirth of Nullification in Alabama
