The Joy Formidable: "Cholla"

People who claim that "there's no good music coming out nowadays" typically seem to have that attitude because they want music to remain frozen in amber circa whatever era they graduated high school.

Well if you grew up in the 90's there's really no excuse to be sleeping on bands like Metric or The Joy Formidable. Hell, the latter has even been on a major label (Atlantic) since their first - and, so far, only - album, 2011's The Big Roar. The follow up, Wolf's Law, isn't expected until January but recently the band gifted us an advance in the form of "Cholla", a hook-soaked anthem that would have saturated alt rock radio if Garbage had recorded it back in the mid-90's.
