Artist: Hotel War Track: "Marooned" Album: Hotel War Listen

Firmly in the camp of The White Stripes and The Black Keys, Columbus trio Hotel War peddles a gutteral mix of Delta blues, Southern rock and the snarl of metal revisionists like my beloved Wolfmother. They've got an EP out already, and several new songs up on their homepage.

I've been talking with the dudes this week, and we'll be writing more about them soon.
