Deer Tick, or How to Name Your Band After an Invasive Parasite and Still Sound Awesome

So, I was cruising around on random blogs yesterday, and happened upon this post on IGIF about a guy called Deer Tick and few songs of his from an upcoming album called War Elephant.

Now, I like animals as much as the next guy, but Deer Tick? The ones that bite you if you're not covered up in the woods and gives you Lyme Disease? Really? Oh well, weird band names aside, it helps that the two songs up there pretty much rule, so go check them out. They say he sounds like a younger Tom Waits, which I kind of agree with, but I do really like the was his voice sounds. Also the story about him in the post is pretty funny.
