MP3 At 3PM: Mark Lanegan Band

Though the Black Keys may be the headlining rock blues at the moment, the Mark Lanegan Band aims to make its mark with new single “The Gravedigger’s Song.” Opening with a fast bass and rigid drums, Lanegan’s modernized blues are extremely crisp and well-constructed, supplemented well by Lanegan’s voice. Indeed, the former Screaming Trees frontman sounds like a younger Tom Waits, oddly soothing as he sings in French midway through. The album, Blues Funeral (4AD), is out February 7.
