Sometimes you don't got no room

Billing themselves as "the world's only pop-ragtime duo," these two guys from NYC know how to make a ruckus! The New Rags remind me of a much tighter, more playful version of a band i saw open for John Spencer Blues Explosion in Iowa City many many many years ago (g.nelson just reminded me - the band was Doo Rag but now that i listen i'm not sure why i made that connection). I love the gritty dirty keyboard sound and garage feel, but my favorite part of this song are the "WHOO!" moments - i can imagine playing this song and spontaneously shouting out like that.
